Great Location and Great Food

What a beautiful spot for dinner! Sitting in a covered patio looking out at surfers and Sandy Beach. Parking can be a little tough and they ticket if not in the lot! Food was really, really good. Recommend fresh seafood. Nice bar and drinks, too.

I will never stay here again. Internet sucked, no hot water and rooms were tiny and over priced. There were yellow stains on the bed cover (not sure what that was). The bartenders are too busy trying to pick up on women to take your drink order. Cops showed up the second night we were there to break up something.... More

The winters are packed! Summer it's just average. Good beach bar with amazing views. Kind of the spot to go for locals after the other bars shut down. Please start showing up after 10ish. Amazing sunset views and pretty quick service.

The food was decent, but nothing to write home about. The view is tremendous if you want to watch the sunset while having cocktails. The service was also decent.

The only bar right there at the beach with music,food and beers/rum. During the winter season is packed with people around the world. I recommend the chicken wraps/burgers, and the Tamboo Burger. What else you can ask, to eat a homemade Burger with the beautiful view of the beach and a good cold beer at lunch.

What fun to sit at the edge of the ocean and enjoy the ambience and good food. Kind of out of the way but worth the trip to see the neighborhood The piña colada cervix he was innovative and delicious.

Casual open air seaside cafe with two levels. Right on the beach! Good food, friendly staff. Easiest option from Casa Islena.

We found this after searching in vain for another place mentioned in our 2007 guide book. It was just what we wanted, a place on the beach where we could eat and watch the sunset. We just had burgers. They were fine. Service was good. You can eat at the open air tables, with a roof over your head in... More

The food was good and it is perfectly located right off the beach. BUT, once the food came so did the flies. It was just difficult to eat and help the kids while swatting flies.

This place offers the best sunsets and delicious seafood. On our first evening going to this restaurant, we were met with a very lovely waitress. She assured us when a table up on the deck becomes free they would move us to have a view of the sunset. She did not disappoint...within 30 minutes we were upstairs on the deck... More
