We caught barracuda on a fishing trip & the captain took it here for them to cook it for us. We loved it! They cooked it 4 different ways, my favorite was the ceviche. They were super nice & all the food was delicious!

It´s a nice place to eat in Playa. It is small and simple but the food they serve is very good! The fish is fresh and very well done, so are the tacos and the guaca mole. The people that work there is very nice.
