Situated right on the beach, the restaurant has a lovely view. The food (we had the nachos, one portion is enough for two people to share!) was very tasty and fresh, however the service was rather slow and reserved. Something you have to prepare for...More

We came here based on a recommendation of a friend. We sat with the sand between our toes and enjoyed the view of the beach. We ate mixed fish/shrimp ceviche and it was very tasty with ample proportions.

Had a plate of the most delicious chicken nachos and two bottles of corona for less than 200 pesos. Absolute hidden gem right on the beach. The portions are extremely generous so be prepared for a large meal. Be prepared for an onslaught of beach...More

Every beach town has one: an established places with great location which decides to cut many corners on food and drinks just because they think they can. And that is Pablo's story: average guac, silly expensive drinks with little alcohol, noisy due to vendors, and...More

Right on the beach, we all ordered different things. The Ribs were very good, surprisingly so, done in a Mexican Gravy (that's what they called it). The ceviche was good, everything was. Staff was prompt, friendly, and got us everything we needed or wanted. We...More
