Horrible service. We cancel the order and just left the place. Nobody welcomed us and the two employees (females) was too hostile and arrogant. I went there with my daughter and a friend with her daughter and was a very unpleasant experience.

Definitely recommend

My friend and I visited El Mako last Saturday June 25 2016, because the other restaurant that we always visit was closed due to a private activity. We asked for fried red snapper. Mine with smashed breadfruit (tostones de pana) and my friend with mofongo. The fish seams to be defrosted in a microwave because was chewy. The tostones were... More

This was our least favorite spot in the small town. It was extremely expensive and the food was so so. I ordered shrimp Mofungo and it was tasty but the shrimp was extremely chewy. Hard to eat. My husband stuck to porkchops because it was to expensive. I wouldn't probably return.

We just came back from hiring a private fisherman to view Monkey Island and wanted to grab a bit to eat and after asking around found this place. Ambiance: They have music playing in the background with lots of light. The Food: Here is the real 'meat and potatoes'; pun intended. One word....DELICIOUS! Three of us ordered an appetizer but...

The lobster salad was good, but I would have liked more for the price. The mofongo was good. We did not like the decoration and setting much.

Waiting time for food was for 1.5 hour. We ordered 3 fried fish and 1 bake fish, the food arrived completely cold. Apparently it was served for a long time and never arrive the table. We do not recommend this restaurant. They need to improve quality of food, customer service and cleanliness.

Best lobster I have ever had! Amazing restaurant near the ocean. I had Garlic Lobster (unbelievable!), and those I dined with had lobster salads as well as conch. They also had a fresh fruit punch that was very good.

Hard to find online - only found it on a competitive travel site :) referred to in a B&B review.
