This beach bar was so much fun! The wait staff was very talkative as were all the customers. A great place to learn about the area. The setting was beautiful, right on the beach itself. The food was great for a casual, fried seafood, bar type restaurant. The drinks (we had margaritas and beer were also good. A wonderful spot... More

We have been there several times and loved every one of them. The beach is pristine white sand and the water is perfect for swimming or just lounging around. The staff is very friendly and the food is freh and good. The menu is very limited, seafood only.

Personable, wonderful and a pleasure to talk to. We didn't eat but enjoyed our drinks in this amazing setting and I know we will go back for a meal before we... More

We had become acquainted with a couple from Ohio at our resort... More

We found this little place on a beautiful piece of beach. The fish is excellent, so fresh! The Thai fish dish in particular was wonderful. The setting is gorgeous, and we rented lounge chairs from the owners for the day. The service is excellent, and the staff so friendly. We returned twice.

Our first day in Farallon found us walking the beach and ending up at Pipa's for a late lunch. I had the Bomba chicken, a specialty of the owner's while my husband tried out the grilled sea bass....both were delicious. Sitting on the beach and watching the waves come in was a perfect setting for great food. Loved the artwork... More

We loved the food and the informal setting. Perfect for the beach. A bit far away from our hotel but the walk there was great.

nice views of the beach, cold beer after a long walk... Did not try the food (but it looked good from other people ordering) ... Very friendly staff. On Sunday's this place is booming with the local crowd.
