Great food, great atmosphere, reasonable prices

The service was very efficient and the food came out pretty quickly. A hand-held menu would've been nice than it all being written on a huge chalkboard inside the restaurant, but nonetheless, it was still a great experience.

This restaurant was recommended by a local from our resort, and we ate there for breakfast. Nice views, right on the water! The ceviche was unbelievable (lunch is available at breakfast), as was the cinnamon roll and fruit bowl. The only con is they don't accept credit card.

This is a cute little place with a good location. Very peaceful and well kept. I had a veggie burrito which I loved mainly because of the delicious tortilla they wrapped it up in.

We loved Estel's food and history of the restaurant. We met the owner, Charlie, who started and took an old hotel (with marble floors still there under the sand floor!) and converted it into the current restaurant.

Breakfast here was good and the service was excellent. The breakfast burrito and fry jacks were good, but not the best I have ever had. The breakfast potatoes were the highlight of the meal. A fun place to get to early and enjoy the breeze and view of the ocean.

This place is packed around breakfast. I had the fried jacks and scrambled eggs. It was alright, nothing special.

Great little restaurant by the sea! The location is just a short walk away from Amigos Del Mar and we had one of the simplest but best breakfasts of our week here. The banana pancakes were tasty and filling and the fry jacks with bacon, eggs, and potatoes were a great way to start the day. Highly recommended!

Really enjoyed a traditional breakfast. The menu is varied so if you would like more local fare it is available. Service was very friendly and efficient! Great views!
