They made up a tasty vegetarian curry special for us. The fried calamari salad was another hit in our group.

I liked that they had a good variety of beers, and that they seemed to follow sanitary rules.The atmosphere is very eclectic, and this is a very romantic place to take your loved one.

I had a good pizza, my wife a not so good Mahi Mahi. Wouldn't recommend the Mahi Mahi! Service was ok. Find the price a bit on the high. Would probably not go there again.

I usually go here for the pizza, which is great, but my wife has gotten some amazing salads here as well. The menu is varied with a good selection of meats and fish, but alas I'm a vegetarian so I can't speak to these. I go here regularly and I'm never disappointed.

We had dinner here at the recommendation of the condo owners we rented from. Two of us had the maha mahi which was very fresh and a very generous portion. My mahi mahi was cubed, in a mild curry with lemongrass and coconut, served in a basket of deep fried shredded yucca. Absolutely delicious, the best restaurant meal I've had... More

El Pecado was recommended by a colleague and it did not disappoint. Definitely order the ceviche or any seafood on the menu, especially tuna steak or mahi mahi coconut curry. Nice Thai infusion on an island whose restaurateurs are trending towards that style. Prices very fair. Outdoor seating is available, and is great people for the cast of characters strolling... More
