We were taken there for an end of visit lunch with our relatives. Fish resturant we were told; the menue listed a multitude of new taste to experience that we had not sampled before. I ordered the Enchilada Acapulco (filled with lobster, caramelized onions, + other great tasting ingredients), my wife went for the Cabo Crab Cakes. Delicious. Desert was... More

The best conch fritters I ever had, better than the ones I have in key West, bite size and very, very little dough, all conch. Had the main for lunch, was excellent. My friend had the Rock Fish which was also excellent.

This is not your every day seafood restaurant. The food is so fresh and delicious. The service is paced and attentive. We had a slice of Key Lime pie that was heaven. This is a quaint local gem.

We had a wonderful meal'. Tried the coconut tomato soup and it was outstanding!! The entree was the enchiladas with shrimp and crab meat with a lime cream sauce'. This was amazing! I would go back again in a heart beat!

I enjoyed a nice fresh green salad with grilled shrimp. It's great to have a place to get a light and tasty lunch. The salad green are from a local farm and wonderful - with a just picked flavor. My companions ordered different dishes and were very pleased.

Although called a seafood restaurant, about half the menu entries are seafood. The rest are a mix of other foods, so the menu although small has some variety although it has shrunk recently. The emphasis is on Caribbean and Latin flavors, however the quality of the food is now poor --- heavy and very greasy with what seems to be... More

My family love this place--always a variety, and each time we go we find something new to try. Loved the fish dinner--it is a little disconcerting having the entire fish on the plate, but boy is it good.

This is a restaurant to return to. It’s comfortable and unpretentious; its menu is creative (favoring seafood with some spicy Mexican touches), offerings change often enough to entice you, service is good, and the food is almost always delicious. Our most recent visit confirmed all of this. We found a new (to us) menu and managed to arrive just before... More
