We visit the restaurant with lots of friends with business purpose. This was one of the restaurants we attended. Very lovely and romantic to go with your couple in a full moon night. The fish its great and fresh. Do not order other food cause its not that tasty, I recommend only fish. The Clerico its great wih fresh fruit.

The coconut dipped ship is very good. The filleted fish, sarandeado style, also very good. Waiters are friendly. A bit expensive.
