The food and service is excellent. We ordered their specialty of the house, which I do not remember the name as it is a Spanish name but the waiter and waitress can tell you what it is. Their margaritas and coconut flan are delicious. Marcy & Hal/Tucson,AZ

What a place, what service, what culture. If you are trying to get away from all the touristy restaurants for a night, this is it. The food is more than good enough, the drinks are delicious and the owners/waiters are conforming and caring. Great place, good food, A+ atmosphere.

The view is worth a lot here, overlooking the beach. And La Panza is off the beaten path, so a bit quieter. The salad of romaine, pears, blue cheese and mango dressing was excellent. Guacamole okay, but pre-made so too cold. The fish taquitos (3) were fine, nice sauce. Sol was cold and quick.

I ate here three times in a week. The food is excellent, with large portions. The place is right on the water with a beautiful view and the service is excellent.

Visited early on a dreary morning, my spirits were lifted immediately with great Mexican Food and the most serene view. Wait staff was excellent and decent prices. Visited in 2011.

We walked to Puerto Morales from our resort and stumbled upon this restaurant - this was by far the best meal we had this week! We ordered the queso fundido and the tocho morocho (basically fajitas - beef, chicken, chorizo, peppers and onions, yum!) Cute décor, right on the beach, great service. Must try it!
