Fun place to enjoy a margarita and sunset. Nice outdoor seating with ocean view. Shrimp cocktails are okay but shrimp ceviche is awesome.

Beautiful view of Rocky Point. Guacamole is excellent! Great very strong margaritas. A little windy on the balcony but inside dining also available.

We went to our usual Sunset Dinner. The food was fantastic as usual. Although no one had an alcoholic drink, they do make some great margaritas. The sunset was spectacular as usual.

Always friendly greeting by owner Cristina. Food is wonderful & the view cannot be beat! Coconut shrimp and bacon wrapped shrimp are specialities. Have a margarita & wait for that sunset. It is bound to be a doozie!

I believe that they will take reservations.as we had a group of 14. That may have been done because of the size of our group.

They serve fresh local fish. But they have it on the menu. I belive it is frozen. It is more for clams, oisters, shrimp. They are the best.
