Recommended by our hotel desk clerk but rather disappointing. Indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly wait staff. But $85 for a margarita and $40 for ice tea without a refill is gouging. However, pizza was tasty as was my camarones al coco with mashed potatoes.

The service was very nice. The food was so so. I had the chicken in lime sauce but especialy the sauce was not my taste. There are better restaurants in the area.

We ate here a few times on our visit. I had the caramelized onion and brie pizza which was great. The wife kept having the garlic shrimp every time. The coconut flan is also amazing.

Tables, ceiling fans, TV playing football, a row of bar stools overlooking the Main Street. Handsome bartenders. A place to people watch. Strong margaritas and some interesting drink specials. Limited bar menu. Gracious waitresses. Good place to relax before dinner.
