We only ate here once, but the service and food were very good, and you couldn't beat the ocean view. I had a tuna salad that was fresh seared yellowfin tuna steak on top of mixed greens, and it was out of this world.

The food was amazing, the service was ok. The place was packed so they should hire more waiters in order to provide a better service.

Excellent beach front dining! The tuna tar tar is to die for! My son had the tuna sandwich and the slab of tuna was huge! Great service!

We went for lunch and a little later than typical lunch hour. It was not super busy and our Service great. I think just calling when you arrive in CR will work. A day or two notice for the day you an to eat at establishment.
