This quant little spot is the definition of hospitality and the service and food is beyond amazing! Our server, Madison was very personable and the manager, Char followed up to ensure our expectations were exceeded. We will definitely be coming back to this little gem! PS: the clams and ahi tuna nachos were mouth watering!

Perfect spot to enjoy the views, sip and a few frosty beverages, and sample the local fare. I introduced my traveling companion to the tuna nachos. She was thoroughly impressed.... More

We stayed at Playa Largo Resort and Spa and wanted to grab a bite off the property but nearby. I'm glad a fellow traveler recommended this restaurant otherwise I might have missed it. It's set back from the road, but there is a large billboard. If you love tuna, you must get the tuna nachos. They layer wonton-like chips, seaweed,... More
