Service was great. My sisters and I went on a quiet day. We had tacos and margaritas and a few hours later we were violently ill. I will never eat there again.

Food was ok. Enjoyed the outdoor view while eating lunch. Waiter should have been more attentive to our table. Free wifi.

Everything was excellent. The person who helped us her name is Diane and Aldo. Great service, very attentive. The food was delicious. With the order that we made we thought it was going to be expensive. But we were wrong. I would definitely come back.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch on the patio overlooking the ocean -- an absolutely mesmerizing view! The service was fantastic and the waiter (Leonel?) was cute! Wish I could have spent more time here!
