Although is not a fancy place , they have the best zarzuela and parrillada on earth. Everything is fresh and delicious . Favorite spots in the Island (& planet earth) best part: inexpensive !!! It's definitely a must .

Rich flavour, friendly staff, good experience. Their seafood rice (paella) and the fish with shrimp sauce on top are beautiful.

This is an unpretentious sea food place. It's decor is clean , simple but nice. Due to the all inclusive wave , the island of San Andres has never been able to have a solid restaurant scene ( together with total government corruption ). So Capitan Mandy is one of the few delicious options. Don't miss it. The battered shrimp... More

My girlfriend and I ate here after reading solid reviews on tripadvisor, and although the operating hours appear to be lunchtime only, we were stoked with our meals there. The staff are very friendly and can help with a number of recommendations, but their ceviche is amazing, as was the pulpo (octopus). Would definitely recommend this for seafood lovers, and... More

Arrived here based on TA reviews. Service was non existent, the starter took 40 mins to arrive and we left before the main course came because it have been over 1.5hours for a sushi dish. Dishes were very expensive for what they were. Wouldn't recommend.

For the standards of San Andres, the prices are relatively low and you eat nice, fresh fish. The service is very nice and cordial.

The service is already outstanding, everyone super welcoming and friendly, and when the food arrives you understand why the place is #1 on TripAdvisor. Great place for lunch (or dinner if you don't mind eating a lot). A must for San Andres.
