It is difficult to proved a comprehensive review of this restaurant, since my meal never arrived. After 55 minutes, I had not even seen my salad. Nor was my server anywhere to be found. Other servers said they would send him right over. Never saw...More

The food is very good, but you should go for the specialties of the house (the grilled or fried fishes, plantains, fried cassava), otherwise you'll be very disappointed. The service is not good at all, I've been there about three times in different periods of...More

Spent a perfect, three hour afternoon on the deck of this great place, enjoying the view of the lighthouse and the beach.... and great "people-watching" too ! The service was a happy blend of wait-staff, and strolling inside for some self-serve too. Lovely-casual. Ice cold...More

Have gone there in multiple opportunities to eat great fish! Please try a large fried snapper, you won't regret it... It gets busy around 1 in the afternoon and specially on weekends but worth the wait..

For tasty, casual beach fare. Great burgers and fish sandwiches. Nice terrace to hide from the sun. Cold bear. Casual crowd.

The place is a beach food cafe, so we do not expect something fancy. It is just steps from the beach with a water view, breezy and nice. We thought that we will found only junk food, but the food was fresh, with good options...More

Service was not nice and too slow. Food was poor, the avocado salad ($8) barely has greens, and to add a protein the price doubles. The "natural" pinnaple juice felt like it came out of a can, it was too sweet. It is the only...More

Worst food ever, don't go here, take your own food. I ordered avocado salad they gave me 3 whole avocado halves, with unchopped iceberg lettuce. My wife ordered a salmon burger which was the grossest thing I ever tasted. Location is great but you better...More
