Fresh and tasty food

If you are looking for fresh and tasty food you should visit this restaurant. It is well located on a second floor where you can either sit on the open sky terrace or inside underneath a fancy wooden "palapa". The card has a lot of variety of food and you will also find good vegetarian options. Try... read more

The headline says it all. We went here on two separate occasions and loved everything. Specially the view at sunset while drinking good red wine while waiting delicious stakes. Everyone greeted us with big smiles.

We ate here twice in our week's stay and would have gone back but we ran out of time, I had the Surf & Turf and the lobster fettucuni, the presentation was excellent, the steak melted in the mouth and the lobster was cooked to perfection. The other half had fillet steak on both occasions and, trust me she knows... More

The T-bone steak was mostly fat and tasted like it might have been on the verge of going bad before they cooked and served it.

I've been here twice and we were very satisfied on both occasions. The food is genuinely good and the service is friendly.

We thought the two entrees we got were overpriced for what we received and we really didn't like either of them. I had a beef skewer (very tough, vegetables were pretty much raw), friend had a dinner special of lobster and steak, also tough. We had much better food at our hotel (Palapas de Sol)

Some interesting choices for dinner, but very pricey. The ostrich steak was fair, and the fundido was uninspired.
