Coming from US, there was a certain expectation of good Mexican food, and possible customization, if vegan would be substituted for meat. The waitress was absolutely not interested in taking an order, service was slow and the chips were so-so. But the food was fresh...More

Everything at El Chico is subpar. Starting with the service. The waitresses are disinterested, slow to respond and generally unpleasant. Complimentary chips are stale and storebought.

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
