The mojito was so-so, the seafood was great

We were advised of this restaurant by the person we were renting from while staying in the area. She was spot-on! Good menu, prices, and service. Nice location across from the beach. Great fish and ceviche!

Open air, beach front, umbrella drinks, delicious food and reasonable prices! I ordered the mahi mahi hamberguesa and my husband had the tuna. Both were delicious! Service was fast and courteous. Highly recommend!

Recommended by our guide at the Park. It had friendly service, cold beer and yummy seafood! It was conveniently located not too far from the park. It was hot that day and they had the beer cold and the fans running!
