We visited once so may have been unlucky. The food was good and reasonably priced but the manager seemed tired and was not very helpful. The restaurant closes at 10pm.

LA Cueva only serves fish. Waiters were acting on their own. Simply walk down to the beach or to one of the dive shops. You'll have many options to choose from. None are fancy, only open pongas, like big rowboats. Get... More
