We went here for my bday dinner. This restaurant is on top of a cliff overlooking Isabela. Beautiful setting and great food! Big portions as well. It seems more like a sports bar type setting so definitely casual but very nice. Tables and chairs are a little worn and wobbly but it was fine. Service was great. Definitely would return.

Waited for over 25 minutes for appetizers and over an hour fret thy for my food. Waitress has no people skills or sense of urgency. Even waited over 10 min for my bill and the place was not busy at all. Won't be returning as a customer nor will I recommend it.

Too loud, even from a couple miles away...hard to have a conversation, no diet drinks and worse two miles away at midnight we are still subjected to hearing the awful music..

This is the type of place that you go at after a long day of surfing or on the beach. The view was spectacular and the mushroom steak was exceptional. For me it was just what I needed.

Good location but we went at night do we didn't see the view. Food so so. Service very slow (probably normal island time) but it was so loud! We didn't come for live band but we couldnt hear each other. It's a bar atmosphere at night. It was late and we didn't know our options. Too bad.

We have been to this restaurant several times. Each time we enjoy the view and the cool breezes, being on top of a hill looking down onto the beaches of Jobos and Montones. We have a drink and appetizers, and its fine.

The only good thing about this restaurant is the view. The service was very bad, there was only one waiter attending and several people in the bar area doing nothing. Employees drinking, smoking and joking. The food was not very good. I expected more from the restaurant and disappointed me a lot.

Had a great visit to this place, it is perched on a hill over looking jobos/montones beaches... saw whales breaching! Service is a bit slow and live music was loud but very good! kids enjoyed dancing and we had a selection of tapas. Would return, just don't be in a rush... you are on island time! The view is spectacular...... More
