Ate here twice in the week we were there. Had Red Snapper once and Tuna the other time. Both were excellent. Service was good, the food was excellent (as fresh and well prepared as any fish I have had anywhere) and the experience was fun. A really nice family run restaurant that I hope to get back to.

I see why this restaurant has a high rating. It is wonderful. Service is outstanding as well. Have the shrimp - you will not be sorry.

We were recommended this restaurant by Armando, the owner of Hagia Sofia. He did not steer us wrong! The seafood was incredibly fresh, our meals were delicious, and the service was great. The place seems a little touristy but don't let that put you off. This place is definitely worth a visit.

The best and freshest seafood we have ever eaten. Had lunch last week when we stopped for the day on our Panama Canal cruise. Considering a holiday back to Huatulco just to eat here again. 4 of us had lunch for $40 USD (and there prob. was enough food for 6-8 of us) The catch of the day, tuna filet,... More

Our friends joined my wife and I here for dinner. Two had shrimp and one had octopus, and they all raved about their meals. I had Mahi Mahi cooked in garlic butter. It was perfectly done and a generous portion. The taste was amazing. Staff were great and the price was very reasonable. A great place!

I grew up next to the ocean. Let me tell you, this is some of the freshest sea food I have ever had. Not only that, but these guys do it right. If youre with a big group 4+ get the red snapper butter garlic. If its just you try, the pulpo. Pulpo is hard to do right and these... More

Nice little place for seafood. The waiter brought out a lovely fresh snapper which my wife and I shared. We also had the octopus. Yummy!

Our Hotel receptionist recommended this place and so happy we made it. The seafood soup was fantastic and huge. The grilled fish and tuna also superb. Everything we tried was cooked really well and the staff very friendly and welcoming. Fantastic value as well.

It's not opened late, closes at 8pm this time of the year... We missed it on our first try. But once we found it opened it was well worth it. As an appetizer I got the seafood cocktail, a mix of shrimp, octopus, and conch in a sweet tomato sauce... absolutely wonderful!!! The rest of the mean was just as... More
