I went there with two other friends on what appeared to be a slow night. We had been there previously a few times and it was okay but noticed a decline in service and quality as time went by. Our visit the other night will be our final one as it was not a pleasant experience. As I mentioned it... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner. The restaurant was full. We had chimichangas and enchiladas con todo, both very tasty. They also serve a very nice lemonade.Very reasonable prices for Cayman.

The food was fresh, well cooked and tasty accompanied by excellent service on a quiet night. Not... More

Service was a little slow, but worth the wait. Not overly spicy, so even children can enjoy the restaurant.

If you are staying on Seven Mile Beach and need a break from fresh fish, check out this place. We ate here twice during our vacation and I really like the chicken quesadillas and hubby enjoyed the gorditas. Clean and quaint. No steps so handicapped accessible. Tables are a good height for wheelchair.

How did this place get a certificate of excellence? It is very average and I would not return. A lot of very basic flavors. Queso that seemed out of a can. Plain guacamole, beans, bland boring rice. Service was slow. No running water in the mens room sink, no faucet during our visit on 12/12/13.
