Beautiful romantic atmosphere

This restaurant is small and inside a condo complex, but feels secluded and quiet for a romantic dinner.

This place was small, quaint and great. No issues with service because of its size and the food was great.

We ate dinner at La Lunita three times during our recent visit. The food was fresh and delicious, and we enjoyed the clean, contemporary atmosphere. It helped that it was only three doors down from our condo. Loved the grilled fresh catch of the day with garlic and the grilled lobster on Friday, which is lobster night. Saturday night is... More

Had a beautiful, romantic dinner here and wished we had gone sooner. Food was incredible. Also, order the Sangria - you'll want a pitcher for yourself!

My husband had Catch of the Day both times and said it was excellent. I had tuna one night and coconut shrimp the other. Very tasty. My... More

I do not recommed this resturant if you are extremely hungry. The portions are really small for the price, but the food was good.

My husband looked up an on line menu after we stepped into the restaurant earlier in the day--didn't have time to eat then, but loved the atmosphere. Quaint but stylish. There were several delicious options that we were interested in when we reviewed the online menu only to discover they weren't available when my husband went in to order and... More

A bit further down the beach road from La Buena Vida- you will find this little jewel. It has slightly more upscale fare then the standards (Turtle Bay, Lol Ha & La Buena Vida) with an appropriate price increase (but well worth it!). The drinks are great, the setting is beautiful and the food is one notch under outstanding but... More

This was the best meal we ate in Mexico! The enchilada mole was incredible. We can't wait for another meal here!
