Great coffee and eggs. Fruit plate was okay but small. Toast was good. Service was fast. I've only had breakfast here so far.

We were headed for another restaurant which was closed and decided to try this bistro for lunch. We are glad we did. The girls had the lobster and shrimp, we had the snapper prepared different ways. Everything was very fresh and cooked perfect. The service was impeccable and the place was clean and nice. We enjoyed meeting the resident parrot,... More

Just wanted a bagel with cream cheese...decided to try their bagel with cream cheese and green pepper and garlic. Wow, a special treat! Bagel nicely toasted, warm with just the right amount of cream cheese, green pepper and garlic. Coffee was good and plentiful. Excellent service and WiFi.

If you want to splurge a bit, the lobster and shrimp combo is the best ever. For $220 pesos (about $14.00 U.S.) I had two small lobster tails and five large shrimp, along with a baked potato, rice, vegetables, bruschetta, and a huge margarita. It definitely was better in February when the lobster was fresh, but it still was very... More

We were headed to Rosters for breakfast when we passed by this restaurant. There were several people there having breakfast which is a good sign. We decided to have breakfast there instead. The omelets were quite good, served with toast and coffee. The waiter made sure our coffee cups were full at all times. Overall a good choice for breakfast.... More

We had lobster tails at this place. They were HUGE!!! And they were absolutely delicious. Our meal came with a complimentary beverage and I tried their sangria which was delicious. Great service, reasonable prices. Loved it, will be back for sure.

my husband was hungry for lobster, and Victor (the owner) offered two tails and garlic shrimp for 220 pesos (roughly $17 USD). We decided to give it a try, and were very pleased. My husband started with French onion soup that he said was excellent. I had a huge Caesar salad which was huge and tasted great. The lobster and... More

We wanted a very plain breakfast since we had been sick. We decided on a bagel 69mp with bacon 30mp and pancakes 80mp. Took a while to get our food. Waiter was attentive and the bagel was good.

Lobsters painted in the ceiling - Michael Jackson picture on the wall. Don't let that stop you from trying this place. Not a place to go if you want Mexican, but a great place for a good meal.
