My fiancee and I were patrons at your establishment this past Saturday November 22nd, my fiancee made reservations to celebrate our engagement (he proposed a few hours earlier!). As you probably already know we were very happy and excited. He later mentioned to me that he informed the hostess of the special occasion and she confirmed the server would be... More

First time visit... Widest range of Red Snapper recipes I ever saw... all read nicely from the menu and made choosing a bit difficult. Our server was very helpful in navigating the options. Wife had the Sea Bass - and she raved about it! Service was excellent, and the ambiance very classy All-in-all, a very nice evening. Reservations are highly... More

owner greeted guests at entrance and concerned that service and meal was good. Galveston has never had really good restaurants but this one was great. Service excellent. Quality of food was equal to many restaurants in large cities. This will be my only choice whenever I am in Galveston.

It's been about 6 months since our last visit and I can say that things are still Fantastic! This is Galveston Island's Premier Restaurant. Quality of food and service is perfection in motion. The menu is extensive but not overwhelming with choices of fresh seafood and appetizers. On this visit I never opened the menu as our experienced, professional and... More

This is a very nice place for a wonderful steak. The service was excellent. You can rent your own wine storage for your favorite wines. If you are looking for a special place with wonderful food, this is the place to go.

This was the one restaurant I made a reservation with even before we arrived in Galveston. Our dinner was excellent with both of us ordering from the seafood specials for that evening. Appearance and taste were top notch. The service was extremely attentive and all three courses were well spaced. We had a warm welcome from Paco and sitting next... More

We love this place! We try to come whenever we are in Galveston. Paco (the owner) is always there and treats us like old friends (I guess by now we are) he took my drink order and had the bar make a fantastic Grey Goose LaOrange Cosmo just as if I made it, but better cause I didn't. The atmosphere... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Galveston and many years at this location are a testament to their success. Paco, the owner is always there to see that everyons is well attended to. I consider this to be a world class restaurant. I suggest having reservations.

Eclectic menu with a Latin flare. Notable wine list, with the exception of sparklings. Escargot was very good. Had the baked snapper with lump crab. Cooked perfectly. Attentive quick efficient service b
