There are many bars along Playa Zicatela and Playa Principal with beachside tables under palapas; most of those serving food have a predictable menu of basic shrimp, octopus, and fish dishes. The best choice at these places is usually the whole fried fish, often mojarra, generally served with a side of rice and salad. These restaurants change with such frequency that it's best to just scout them out and pick the one that has the most local customers that day.
