I had a business lunch with a client on the island a couple of weeks ago. As it was my first visit to the island I asked him to choose the restaurant and El Tico was his choice. Firstly the staff we very friendly and helpful but the view from the tables was to die for. It was a sunny... More

They were large, sweet and succulent, smothered in garlic butter and served with delicious, fresh bread and salad. I had the crab linguine: gorgeous chunks of crab with sun blushed tomatoes, chili...

The food was good ribs,fish & chips & spiced fish with cous cous. a large menu with something to please everyone. We... More

I wasn't going to send this, but it has been bugging me since I went Wednesday, so three days ago. I like El Tico.
