The restaurant is open at 5.30 p.m. I have arrived there at 5.15 p.m and wanted to sit by the bar order some drink and wait 15 minutes for the opening of the restaurant. Well the restaurant itself was open you can easily sit down, but the waiter said we are closed, bar is closed. You cannot sit or wait... More

My wife and I ate here last week. It is a good spot, right on the water with good views. However, the food was so-so, the service indifferent and not worth the price. My wife liked her Mahi Mahi but my steak was very tough.

The food was pretty good. The ambiance was great. They had a lounge singer performing and it wasn't over powering, which was good. The service was speedy. We had the tuna and it was well prepared and presented. Overall, I would recommend this place.

This restaurant is located in a marina with little foot traffic, so the ambience was very pleasant. We particularly enjoyed the ceviche starter and the grilled grouper.

Get a reservation because you won't want to miss this dining experience. It isn't big, but the ahi was incredible, the service is great, and there is something for everyone.

We popped in for dinner forgetting it was Thanksgiving and we had not made reservations. We were very fortunate they were able to fit us in. We chose of their regular menu and were so thrilled with the appetizers and both our entre's. The restaurant is small and they were packed, but all of the staff was very nice, even... More

We had a very nice meal at the restaurant consisting of local fishes. The restaurant was busy and the service was good. Prices were very reasonable. I wouldn't go out of my way to drive to Canoa but if you stay at a local resort, like we did, we could not have been happier to have a nice place that... More
