I think we caught the owner off guard when we arrived for lunch as there were no other customers. I had a hearty portion of garlic fish and shared a heart of Palm salad. Both dishes were very good and made to order. The owner said she had gotten the red snapper fresh off the boat that morning.

I go here regularly to get away from the ex-pat gringo crowd. The food is always good and the service is always great.

Found this place by accident. It was empty for lunch, but we were hungry and dusty after driving down to Punta Islita. We had the ceviche, and it was the best we have had in a long time. We watched our server make it in her kitchen, everything was fresh. Glad we stumbled upon this place

8 of us arrived on ATVs just ahead of the afternoon down pour. Power was out, restaurant was candle lite because of the dark clouds. Everything we had was great - fish, chicken, beef - casada prep was wonderful. Better than pacific azul and gilded iguana although both of those were fine - just not as memorable.
