Freshest Fish Ever!

They brought my husband a tray with 2 fresh fish for him to choose, liked it so much the first time that we went out there again the second night. Should call for reservation if you want a table by the balcony, it does get a bit hot by the kitchen. Francisco is a great guy and took good care... read more

I say HOT because there wasn't much air movement and with the huge grills, it was a little uncomfortable. However, the food is unbelievable!

The specialty is fish, and there are many ways to have it prepared - all of them that we tried were delicious! Don't let them sit you near the kitchen; it's noisy.

After catching a Mahi Mahi, we were told by the crew on the boat to take our fish here. They made fish fingers for our appetizers and grill it up nice for our entrees. The fish fingers were the best we have ever had! The grilled entree was pretty good, a little too much black pepper but I scraped off... More

We ordered the calamari for an app. It was not breaded rings as we are used to seeing but the flavor was great. 2 of us had mahi Mahi garlic fillets and we loved every bite. They have kiddos fries that went over well. Chocolate milk was not on the menu but the staff made it happen. We would eat... More

Food was fresh and delicious! Power went out but they cook with propane, so it is no problem! There are candles lit on each table for ambiance!

I always ask a few resort staff members re: restaurants and this was one. It did not disappoint, guitar player doing Bob Marley. The portions are huge...my partner and I only each had 1 appetizer and shared dessert. The restaurant has a nice wine list

This restaurant was recommended to us by our bartender at our hotel. It has a great view and good seafood with good size portions. We got calamari as an appetizer and both got different fish plates, which were both good. Nice outdoor atmosphere, good service, a little bit pricier than other restaurants.

Last night we had 20 people attempt to have what we thought would be a wonderful dinner at what we thought would be a wonderful restaurant. WRONG! I made our reservation 1-1/2 days prior to our dinner last night. So you would think they would have prepared and had enough people on staff to serve us, right? WRONG again. We... More

Mar Luna was recommended by our cabbie and I have to say that I'm very happy we took his recommendation. Yummy made from scratch food. The rice with chicken was amazing and my burrito was the best ever. Great serving size. We sat on the patio and got bit some - so that's my only semi-negative
