Apon arriving we ordered our well deserved cold beers and the menus. It was lunch time so we started to order things from the lunch menu and... More

I went here once & it wasn't too bad. I had a steak but I found portions smaller & more expensive then a few other restaurants around town. it is right near the resort strip so I expect it too be a little pricier & it was.

We walked over to this place later in the evening, so it was kind of dark out, but it was still a nice atmosphere, right on the water. All but one person in our group ordered the lobster tail (20 CUC), which came with a GIANT lobster tail, shrimp, salad, potatoes, rice, beans, bread with garlic butter, dessert and a... More
