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

The view just before dark was of the ocean in the far distance over lots of green trees (Great view???). The lighting was horrible as we sat in a dark blue bulb lit table and the food looked blue and awful. Service was great; read that as prompt. Most food was deep fat fried... Octopus (not deep fat fried) was... More

if you looking to eat "comida criolla" this is the place. Great view. Nothing fancy. Billiards tables, loud music.
