Salsa on the Sand

It's a great place to pick up a free salsa lesson and boogie down. The mojitos were very good and the location is perfecto. The only downside is a padded bill. I'd give this place 5 stars if their honesty was on par with their establishment. For a more authentic place to salsa head on down to... read more

Zenzi has good food. It has actually gotten better over the years. Live music most nights and good drinks. Service was very good and the prices are reasonable.

Good drinks and good food. The owner took the time to adjust the TV's so we could watch basketball and attempted to get channels he hadn't subscribed to yet just for us. Great service. My college aged daughter had a great time learning salsa dancing and had fun dancing with others. Nice place for food or drinks. Live music as... More

We stayed at El Faro, which is next door to Zenzi so we went there several times. We watched basketball at the bar, ate breakfast there and did salsa dancing one night. The food is quite good for a beach bar. We had a blast doing the salsa dancing. Service was good. View is great. Enjoyed it a lot.

We found this Gem several years ago and have kept coming back mostly for the location and the incredible staff! They have really good food and we always eat at least one meal a day there. Great for hanging at the beach or the bar!

On the beach nice to have your feet in the sand while dining. We went here a few times, located next to El Faro our place of stay. Had different music nightly here and food/drinks were good and reasonably priced.

Loved the Coconut Shrimp, amazing dish. A definite must. Right on the beach so it can be windy. Good service
