We went here because we wanted to watch the sun set and enjoy a meal. The food was average. I had a seafood combination which was good. My husband had a steak and he said it was OK. The service was good and the beer was very cold, which was nice.

I make it a point to go to this restaurant, several times, when I am in Sosua. The food is fresh and absolutely wonderful. The awesome view of the ocean makes this a very relaxing place to be.

The best of this restaurant it is near Alicia beach (a wonderful beach in Sosua).The food was good, a little bit expensive (it seems food in Sosua restaurants is not cheap)

We went twice during our trip. One meal was excellent, second time was average. A full varied menu with salads, seafood, steak, chicken, pasta, pork, you name it! A little overpriced. There is a covered dining section and large patio dining. Friendly and fast service. Open for lunch and dinner. Very lovely in the evening overlooking the ocean.

The location is fantastic. You are overlooking the beautiful Sosua Bay. The food is ok. For a place this fancy I feel the food should be better and larger portions. If you just want to have a light biite to eat and have some drinks over looking the water this is the best place maybe in the world!

Very good food and the view was excellent. The service was attentive. It began to rain and the waiter rushed us and our food and our drinks under a shelter before we felt a drop.
