Beer is a great price 2 for 50 pesos. The fillet with blue cheese is not but the chillie Relleno was ok. However they do a fabulous show tableside flambe shrimp

We have dined here twice and the value is not there. Service is rough: not a smile from any of the servers. The shrimp was over cooked, and NOT deveined. Unacceptable. The cost was above most restaurants in the area. Go somewhere else; the Generals for sure.

We visited this past Saturday night and were beyond disappointed! We sat down immediately and it took over 20 minutes just to get drinks. After another 20 minutes, we started receiving our food. We ordered the lobster bisque and what came out was not a bisque, more like a broth. I ordered the steak and lobster, steak medium rare. What... More

Food very plentiful & reasonably priced. Lots of seafood to choose from. Staff very attentive. English quite good. Outdoor seating with random entertainment. Went twice & only down side was being on a diet, I asked for the rich sauce for fish fillet to be served on the side, but chef refused as it would not taste the same (?).... More

We ate here for a birthday meal. We got here just in time before a large rush. The shrimp dishes we ate were okay. I think they forgot our shrimp while cooking them though. They were supposed to be cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped shrimp The bacon was overdone and there was no cheese to be seen. Did we eat them... More

Great seafood and pasta and the prices are very reasonable. We opted for deluxe margaritas and they were ok, I think I would have been just as happy with a regular. The open air dining just off the plaza is wonderful. This restaurant is a very easy walk from a number of the hotels. The service is very good and... More
