I love to stop here for lunch. It is loft see along Salomon's Bay. The restaurant boasts gorgeous views of the aqua blue water and the beach. It is two story building where there is a roof top lounge. The lower levels have the tables and where the majority of guests eat. The mojitos are made with brown sugar making... More

We stayed in Soliman Bay and when our chefs had the night off we went to Sahara Cafe for dinner. We enjoyed dinner and the atmosphere. The owner was great and wanted make sure that our group was enjoying everything. We will return when we go back to Soliman Bay!

Situated in a small swanky hotel on secluded Soliman/Tankah bay, the food and service has been consistently excellent after a 6 year hiatus from visiting this area. Grilled whole grouper and red snapper were delicious, my wife's lobster pasta and seafood pasta were awesome. Beachside eating at its best!

We ate here in March 2016. It was a rainy evening, and we were able to eat outside in their covered patio on the beach. It was truly a lovely way to spend a rainy evening on the beach...we were comfortable and had a wonderful view. The staff is very attentive and even brought a Cuban cigar for my husband... More

Gorgeous place - we were seated in the bottom floor of the outside patio. Could still feel the ocean breeze, but were sheltered well. So quiet and serene. 4 people ate for 1000 pesos. A value for the amazing accommodations. It was delicious, especially the appetizer, chips with sweet vinegar carrots, onions and garlic. I figured it was more expensive,... More

I rate this highly for the atmosphere, we lived at nearby villa so were here 3 times late at night for drinks during holiday week. It is spotless clean, it is very well appointed, it has the right distance between tables as some groups are large but you still enjoy privacy. Beware of hot pepper served as free appetizer to...

Beautiful place, good food, spotty service. Lots of improvements recently, including an infinity pool. Nicely appointed, and really is a beautiful place. Not the best beach around, if you are wanting to swim but the exclusivity is a bonus. The ceviche was excellent, shrimp and fish tacos were ok but not spectacular. Prices not unreasonable though. Really it is a... More

Menu is only in English and the waiter understood very little and looked confused even when pointed on the menu. Ordered salad with prawns and it came without prawns......major confusion, menu back... More

This restaurant is attached to our hotel (Jashita) so we ate there many times during our week stay and had the opportunity to try the majority of the menu. For breakfast I highly recommend the fruit plate, it is very nicely presented and each morning the fruit was top notch. It's an appetizer size so if you're really hungry make... More
