We ordered a half of a grouper and pound of mini lobster. The meal came with salad, fried mahi fritters, house made kettle fried potato chips and deserts. The table we chose was right on the water but we went after dark so the view was limited. Overall...amazing food at a fair price. We will return...

Picked out our own lunch from a large assortment of seafood all on ice. Grilled to perfection. Excellent view of beach and ocean. Very good meal.

This was a nice place, we walked in and everything was great, great service. The only thing was the pricey food cost. We ordered a mahi mahi ceviche, fried calamari, 2 lobster (4.5 pounds both) and 3 presidente's, the total for our lunch was $180 USD plus tip, didn't like the lobster that much to pay 60 for each.

Fish was fresh. Perfectly seasoned and cooked. You can't beat the location. It was our only meal outside of the resort and was definitely worth it.

The food was fantastic, service was very friendly, and the location was excellent. We were seated at the large table right next to the beach - it was a beautiful setting! Our waiter did forget to deliver drinks a couple of times so we had to ask again, but he was so friendly that this was easily forgiveable :). All... More

We ordered the king crab. When it arrived at the table it looked magnificent....however, after cracking open 4lbs of crab amongst us, we were lucky if there was 6 oz of crab meat. This was very disappointing, the other meals were just okay. The was the most expensive dinner of the week and the worst meal we had....very disappointing way... More
