Its a local non pretentious restaurant with good seafood and wonderful "tostones", thin and crispy. Its the place to go with friends or family; not a romantic spot; too noisy. I love the carrucho aperitif w tostones, fried/mashed plantain, but not every place know how...More

No ocean view. Small parking. We had lobster and fish accompanied by mofongo. Great taste , well presented food. Lobster portions are small but tasty. Service was good however there were not that many customers at the place when we arrive.

Family owned business. Very friendly and helpful staff. Less crowded than other places. Food was great and so was the sangría. A favorite among locals. Fresh seafood. Ask for the catch of the day!

Good place for local fish dishes. Thursday nights are Lobster nights. It is Caribbean lobster, but it is done very well. Pay the extra 10 dollars and get it stuffed with local seafood. The service is very good and the sangria is outstanding.
