Their menu has a nice variety of Mexican, American, seafood, and pasta but I went for the special--a seared tuna dish that was... More

Impressive view of Pacific at this casual open air restaurant. Good seafood but would recommend on a cool evening as it was warm and humid the night we went. Service was excellent.

Awesome view, service and the best BBQ chicken quesadillas I've ever had!! The place was packed with large groups but the service didn't waiver. Love how the place is set up so the wonderful breeze can flow through the restaurant. Will be back!

Eat here for good food, great drinks, and an excellent view of the ocean! Food is a little pricey for what it is, but tasty! You can also get some craft costa rican beers here, instead of just Imperial, which was a nice change!
