Directions to Magdalena's Grillhouse

This will be my family's first trip to PDC. I've had a couple of people recommend Magdalena's Grillhouse to me, but I can't find it on my Mapchick map. Would someone please give me directions. How far is it off of 5th Ave? Also is the food good??

Thank you,
Greg

PS: Any other suggestions for family dining would be appreciated .

Go north on 5th to Calle 26, right on 26 to 1st Ave.

The food is excellent! I've eaten there several times and taken friends with and no one has ever had a complaint.

For more dining suggestions, browsing the Changarros y mas forum is highly recommended!

Family dining

We loved La Quinta Passion for buffet breakfast at 5$ pp.Corner of calle26 & 5th Ave. Not a traditional buffet,as they put out 2 juices,sweet rolls,coffee,yogurt,fruit and "something special"in a hot plate such as potato/ham/onion/Peppers in a scramble. Then they take your order for omelets,pancakes,eggs done as you like,& bring it with toast.All for the 5$ U.S.
DiBiggs[a poster here] knows the young couple that run it,newly married and very nice.The best omelets I've ever had,and one of my best friends has a bkfst. place next door to my house and makes them very good,but not any better than there.
Tango Taco is another great place...awesome steaks.Had 2 great meals there too.

They have the most extensive breakfast menu I have ever seen in Mexico. I ater breakfast there 3 times and dinner once last month. I would have eaten breakfast there every day had I known. Dinner I have a rule to eat somewhere different every night on vacation or I would have gone back for that too. I would recommend it to everyone. Softy - I agree about the food at La Quinta Passion. They have a great fajita. They add a hint of habanero that makes it awesome.

We were at El Patio so La Quinta Pasion was under our room. Ate the buffet our last day, yuuuummmmmm.... Ate breaky at La Cueva del Chango 2 morns, again...yyyuuum mmmmmm!!!! We never made it to Magdelena's, but will eat there next trip. We passed it every day on our walk to/from playa tukan and it looked really nice. Let us know what you think about it!!!

Had a superb dinner at Magdalena's last week (see our ongoing trip report), and a great brunch there today. Enormous and varied breakfast menu. 1 large & 1 small OJ, 2 coffees with refills, chirizo omelette/hashbrowns/toast for me, pancakes/sausage/bacon for Mrs.B. We were stuffed. Service was prompt and attentive. Total, with the tip included on the bill - 209 pesos. The pleasant conversation with the charming owners was free.
