Really enjoyed the food and ocean view here! The tomatillo avocado sauce was especially delicious. The service was very good and everyone was really friendly. Our waitress Sandy was great!

I look forward to eating here every chance I get! Esmeralda and her team are always so friendly and remember us every year. My favorite dish is the huevos au gratin with the tomatillo salsa. Yumm!
