We spent most days on the beach in front of La Perla. The wait staff is so nice, helpful, and accommodating. We usually started our afternoon with a cerveza accompanied by chips and (warmed) salsa, and then ordered lunch. My favorite has to be the...More

Wiggle those Altos into that warm sandy beach--and watch those waves rolling in during your lunch/brunch! Environmental impact-----optimum! Service was slow finding Us, and slow with Our beverages----but the outcome was rewarding. Strawberry margarita was the hit! No Pacifico beers!! Clam Chowder was simply--Fantastic! Quesadillas...More

We went here twice, it had good strong drinks, good food, good service, and reasonable price. We found it much better than the restaurant to the right of it on the beach.

Good food and good drinks. Especially Pina Margarita, made with fresh pineapple instead of cheap fruit syrups, as in many restaurants. Inconvenient beach beds. Also did not like that for every single beach bed you must spend a minimum of 200 pesos, that is, if...More

We came down to the beach after lunch to enjoy the waves, some beers, some chips and people watch. We met a beach kitty that was very sweet and treated her to a fish lunch. I think the staff thought we were crazy but they...More
