We had hired a driver for the day, and he took us to this spot. It's on the "wild" side of the island. The view was amazing and we took several pictures of us in front of this picturesque view. The food was wonderful and everything we got was amazing.

While driving around the island, we stopped here to wet our whistles!! The drinks were cold and very good. One comment was it was the best pina colada this person had on the island!! We didn't eat but the food smelled amazing. Beautiful view and some nice souvenir shopping out front.

This is one of our favorite places on the "other side" of the island. They margaritas are the size of your head (and delicious), the food wonderful, the mariachis excellent and the cuban cigars are icing on the cake. What a view! Also, you have to leave your mark behind on the wall!!

I never thought about eating nachos in Mexico. The portions are huge and the views are even better. A great place to eat.

I had the Mexican plate - this comprises a chicken breast fillet, a steak, empanadas, quesadillas and various other bits. i.e. more food than any 1 person should ever eat at one sitting, haha! Very very good though despite the exceedingly seedy decor!

Surf is generally too strong for swimming, so sit back have a cold beer, some great food and waste away the afternoon. You won't be disappointed.

Great service and awesome food! The food is fresh to order and delicious. The fish tacos are simple but amazing. The quacamole and salsa is bomb!
