Wonderful evening

We managed to secure the captains table for the first time. Well how much fun was that? Eight of us ate there and had a blast. The food, which is generally fairly average, seemed better somehow. It must have something to do with the view, or the beautiful sunset, or the great service, or the wine... read more

Called in here for a snack after surfing. The food was good but a bit expensive. I had nachos which were huge and could easily have been shared between two. The guacamole and salsa were home made but a bit onion heavy for my taste. My partner had tomato and pesto soup which was delicious. The main meals looked good... More

Have eaten at El Tico so many times over the years and it's always nice breakfast, lunch or dinner. Good quality food with local produce and there's so many nice dishes on the menu. The burgers are amazing!

The restaurant does not take reservations and when we arrived early for lunch they were not allocating any tables. We walked along the beach and on our return our name was taken and after about 45 minutes (as predicted) we were allocated a table. The food was excellent - we enjoyed a lunchtime salad and mussels. Very clean restaurant and... More
