Low key restaurant right on beach

Food quite good. Happy hour 2 for 1 drinks a great bargain. Wonderful to be there at Sunset. Walking distance down beach (about 20 minutes) from Costa Bonta resort.

food and service was well below par,on two occasions we have had servings which we had to laugh at because they were unrecognizable and one occasion the waiter called them beef faijitas, then corrected himself after we said we ordered chicken.

Just "ok'. Food was average. Nice setting but can be chilly or hot, depending on the outside weather as it is set in a patio environment. Supposedly rated #1 on Metazoan but two experiences there left me giving it an average rating.

View is wonderful. We brought our catch to cooked 3 ways. Although Chris (off at night) had promised us a good table when we dropped of fish, when we arrived at 6 pm got put in back. Best fish cooked was Fried and hot from Cocina. Other couples liked it there, we would not return, prefer Pancho's by the Beach

You can walk out of resort left onto road. Walk 15 minutes to Bruja beach past flea market and restaurants. Beach itself does not look safe. Don't get stranded in high tide.

We enjoyed the location and music. The food is average and priced accordingly. It's a place to go, however.

we travel a looooong way to get there but worth the effort. Every Sunday to listen to our favorite group Ebano sing. We dance, eat and drink and have a super fun time.
