We just happened along this place. Really great view and vibe. We just lounged with a few beers but the food we saw coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled very, very good. We were staying at the Royal De Cameron and this would have been a real treat from the food at the resort!

Sun, light sand, ocean and tasty food. What do you need more?:) During our stay we visited this place twice and always food was tasty. I recommend fish - fresh, not too much additional things, which allows you to enjoy fish taste. Good drinks, good service. During weekends can be crowded. View is breathtaking.

Restaurant on the beach with lots of tables under umbrellas or the main restaurant canopy. Servers speak English. The menu is fairly diverse with about a dozen items. We didn't try everything of course but a couple of things looked better than what I received. The shrimp apparently were good but the fish was way overcooked and the drinks are... More

This is a very reasonable restaurant on the beach. If driving, it is hard to find, but well worth the hassle. It is on the beach, floor is sand, with tables and chairs. Menu is a chalk board with daily specials. Food is great, service is good, and expect to find very busy, especially on a weekend. We visit often.... More

Cero information about the use of the facilities!!! Charging you for all and everything once in the place! If that is the case charge a cover per person and publish it or just don't allow people with any drinks. A total disaster....,

Food is good. Service is okay. Weekends are very busy during the summer. The beach is wonderful. Do not leave your valuables in view.

Waited 60 min for our food at not very busy beach restaurant. Guests who arrived way after us were served pretty fast. After 40 min I inquired what happened, we were told they are just terribly busy, but they were not busy first 30 min after we ordered. Instead of coming clean they forgot our meals, we were told other... More

Not sure why this place is rated so high, fish was way over cooked and was very expensive for what you got.

Pipa's has a nice fried seafood dish that is very popular and the atmosphere is friendly and informal.
