Great open-air seaside restaurant. Mostly expats and US- Canadian tourists there for the amazing shrimp and lobster, happy hour (4-10pm) and live music. Food is fresh, generous and very tasty with great prices. Wait staff is fun - dance while serving. Table side flambe dishes are quite the show... read more

For breakfast, it's their own marinated beef, great flavor, They served this on an omelette (or scrambled eggs) with home fries. They brought us complimentary fresh fruit side and some huge delicious cookies. So very affordable, delicious, on the ocean, mariachi live...em and coffee was very good too

We recently visited this restaurant at the end of a city tour given by Vista Tours. It is a bit North of the main tourist area, but very well worth the visit. A table on the deck beside the beach affords delightful views . The staff handled the influx of our group with ease and guacamole and chips arrived with... More

This is a good place to get off the beach and enjoy a drink or dining. The Margaritas come traditional or blended in a variety of flavors. The food is good for beach food. I had the Aztec bowl. It had Shrimp, Chicken, and beef. It is certainly enough to fill two people.

Not worth the trip. The food was too deep fried and oily. My daughter had a quesidilla and I think they drizzled extra oil on top. A friend ordered the chimichangas and they were deep fried and greasy. My husband and I had the fish tacos, expecting a light tacos with grilled fish and lettuce. It was only fish and... More

Loved this restaurant! Plenty of fun to be had. The clown made us each balloon hats, which was entertaining. Shrimp was amazing! Lobster was a bit dry/overdone. Very authentic, Mexican vibe! We would go back.
