Get the fish tacos every night. You will not be disappointed. I would go back to Drake Bay just for their fish tacos! Salad is light and refreshing and everything we had there was delicious.

The service was slow, unfriendly and borderline rude. The fish tacos, however, were excellent. Fresh, flavourful and garnished with fresh vegetables and tomatos. For outside Mexico, their Margarita was good as well. The menu is varied with good prices for Drake Bay. The restaurant ambiance is nice but they could do better by turning the TV American SITCOMs off when... More

we went with four people and the restaurant was pretty packed (which means: six tables were occupied but it is in general a small restaurant) However, I am pretty torn here to write this review because I had a perfect prepared red snapper at this place which was just delicious. On the other hand, we waited quite long for drinks... More

Our B&B owner suggested that we eat here for our last night in Drake Bay. It's practicially on the beach. The seafood is about as fresh as you'll find anywhere and absolutely delicious. Every entree comes with rice and beans and fresh salad. It's a fabulous place to have a relaxed meal.

We stayed in Drakes Bay for 6 nights and ate here most evenings. The food was high quality and imaginative. A really good chef works here for sure.Amazing for somewhere off the package tourist route. There was always a good atmosphere here. My only wish is that it stayed opens little later!

My husband & daughter dropped in one afternoon for lunch and we had to go back for dinner with the whole family! My son had a shrimp pasta dish that was FILLED with shrimp. My chicken burger was one of the best I had ever eaten. And the hamburgers are great too!!

Wonderful choice of ceviche and good seafood make this place a winner. Closer to beach than other restaurants. You never know when it will be closed, however, or out of fish. When we were in Drake, nobody could get any snapper!

The cooking here is delicious! My favourite dish is the arroz con camarones but anything you eat here, you will leave full and content. The casados, ceviche, and sea food dishes are a hit and wouldn't miss out on. Its also a great place to have a beer after your day on tour or at the beach and relax. Chino... More

This place was very nice with a good choice of menu. I am a vegetarian and had vegetarian fried rice there. Was very tasty. The natural juices were also great! Close to drake bay beach.
