Amazing Views at Sunset

Really lively fun atmosphere, good selection for vegetarians too. I ordered a quinoa bowl with really delicious rice and beans.

Had a wonderful cevechi and the lobster. Lobster was the BIGGEST I have ever seen and so tasty. Service was nice and attentive but parking was difficult, luckily i arrived when someone was leaving. Located right on the beach so every table in the place had a great view.

Place don't look clean. When I'm waiting for the bathroom (door near the kitchen entrance) a roach came out of the kitchen door. The server gave wrong details about the plate so I have to returned my food.

Good place to gather with friends and family. Although, service should pay more attention to service.

There are sleeping quarters upstairs and a bar/eatery downstairs. It doubles as a beach hotel and a bar/eatery. It was one of the more unique spots I've stayed in a long time. The room was great, the view of the ocean from my room even better! There are bout 5 guest rooms, some more spacious than others. If you're into... More

Nice place to eat, have a drink or a beer, watch sports at the bar. I visited the place two times: for lunch and watch a soccer game, and at night, to have a beer, eat appetizers, and listen to live music. Food was good, so were the drinks, and you have the beach just steps away. We even saw... More

The food is delicious, the treatment was excellent and the nightlife was really good. I went a weekend of full party and the entertainment, the security, the people who went there and everything was very good.

My wife and I both had the corn crusted grouper which was very good. Food was served hot and ample portions. The band and bar patrons were a little loud for my taste. It made it hard to have much conversation over dinner.

Very good atmosphere at the beach. The food is very good. The beers cold and the cocktails outstanding. They also a Guest House to stay. Very good too. Try local food. The beach good for the surfing. But careful with the streams. Recommended for groups.
