Perfect tenderloin and chlli rellenos. Wait staff was excellent. Nice atmosphere, and the prices were quiet reasonable. A bit out of town, but well worth the 5 minute drive.

We're so happy to find a nice place outside of Coco! Great food, loved it here! Priced the same as Coco, great service, easy to find, right on highway just before Nacazcol (when coming from Coco).

I had the coconut shrimp and my wife had yet he buccanero shrimp....both excellent choices. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone without kids...more an adult atmosphere... More

We tasted the pizza, some sushi and a specialty plate. The pizza was by far the best of the choices, followed by the sushi. If you go here definitely try the pizza and maybe have some sushi as appetizer. The pizza has a good size to feed 2-3 people. The parking lot is kind of tricky so be careful getting... More

This restaurant had great service, pleasant ambiance and delicious food. We had the Mahi Mahi that was stuffed with Hearts of Palm and Shrimp which... More

This place has sushi that is TO DIE FOR. We ordered the Wendy roll and the Carribean roll. Both were insanely good. I literally dream about this sushi. And I eat a lot of sushi. Another dish I would have to recommend is the Mahi Mahi with shrimp and white sauce. It was so rich and delicious. When the place... More
