Don't order the lobster

Our last day of our trip we decided to try this place based on reviews and the idea of drinking from the clay glasses. It was pretty good. Not the best on the island by far. The chili relleno was good but not the best. I ordered the lobster and for 300 pesos I was pretty disappointed. It was... read more

I agree with Tracyd54. The owner is rude and service is poor. This used to be one of my favorites until we were over charged. I don't like the fact he charges 40mp for a beer he pours into your glass from a already opened half empty 40oz (gross).

This used to be one of my favorites but we won't be back! The quality of the food is nowhere near where it was before and the prices are much higher. I thought we may have just picked poor choices so we went back a second time and it was no better. Making matters worse was the temperamental owner/server. On... More

Off the beaten path near the church in the town center. Everything was good. Like everyone else has said the beer is served n cool ceramic mugs and icy cold. The best thing we had were the special shrimp enchiladas. We did order the bean soup and I was not as impressed as others but it may be all the... More

I wanted ceviche but couldn't afford. Prices a little high but quality well worth it. Great interior decorations and loved the black bean sopa.

I have been to many restaurants on the island. This one is truly the best. Best food and amazing staff! A must must in my opinion!

I had fish in garlic sauce. It was amazing, and so were the fresh salsas and beans that came with it. My server was sweet and friendly. It is so refreshing to get away from the hard-sell of the restaurants on "the strip." Come early to grab one of the few outdoor tables.

We enjoyed our meal here. Excellant sea food. Huge portions and huge hospitality. I've never had conch before, and the dinner here was rich and delicious. Don't be afraid to try something off the usual tourist path. Yum!

Looking at the map of restaurants on TA and I put my cursor on this place. Got good reviews, seemed to be priced well and easy to walk to, so off we went. Wow! We sat outside and had one the best meal of our trip. We really hadn't eaten all day so we did order a lot of food... More

We went here for breakfast on our last morning as recommend by a friend who is staying on the island. Outstanding! At first we were thinking we'd made a mistake, but oh no! We got so much food for $50 pesos! Beans, rice, eggs with bacon scrambled in and tortillas! Plus some amazing sauces, one being, as they called it,... More
