We had conch, paella, and Flan. Everything was delicious and quantities are huge! There's outside and inside seating available. We had a free round of shots afterwards, which was a nice touch.

prompt professional service,indoor air-conditioned seating or outdoor,and very reasonably priced seafood.the lamb ala vinaigrette was a daily favorite followed by either dorado ala plancha or fresh calamari.(with outstanding papas salteado).you would be hard pressed to hit $20/person for appetizer, entry and juice or water for an excellent meal.

reasonably priced, great food, excellent staff, nice menu. Had dinner and a lunch there and were pleased with both. The chicken in mustard sauce was excellent. The potatoes in this area are wonderful!

A very strong selection of food and preparation. The service was nicely done. Have dined out in more than 43 countries and this is one I will remember.
