Very good food and reasonably priced. The place is small but that was kinda nice. You need to get there early they get very busy so you could be waiting for a table. Good bar and great service. Definitely recommend this place.

We ate here our last night in Port A and were very impressed. We had to wait 45 minutes as they were busy and appeared short handed, but it was well worth the wait! The fish tacos were the best I have ever had and the ceviche appetizer was delicious. The waitress was obviously very busy but she took great... More

Food was very good and fresh, but the margarita left a lot to be desired. The bartender was overwhelmed and needed help.

We had the opportunity to dine in this facility. I had the Enchiladas De Camarones, which were delicious. If you like cheese; the Chili Con Queso is awesome. Chips are nice and hot which makes them crisper. Our waitress, God bless her heart was new and was very nervous and slow. Although it was busy we were sat right away.... More

We had a great meal including tasty mahi mahi tacos with lots of spicy goodness. I had the frozen mango margarita, which was strong but good. A young lady sang solo hits that my daughter knew. The place was packed on a Friday night. They don't take reservations or credit/debit cards. Cash or check only. We didn't have to wait,... More

Tried to go to another place across the street, but they were too crowded, so we ended up here. Glad we did. Unfortunately, we didn't get to try some seafood items or the flan because they only take CASH! They have an ATM inside, but I am NOT going to pay a double fee to get more cash. That being... More
