A surprise, in an island town, surrounded by ocean, we were schocked to be served langosta, warm water lobster, that we had to dig out of the shell with knives and forks. The langosta was either frozen or kept too long. This was a real disppointment. This freshness issue, added to the fact that the meal was highly priced, led... More

Came here for dessert, coffee, and juice. All were excellent. The co-proprietor speaks English and is very friendly and helpful. The place is tucked away at the back of the "shopping mall" and worth looking for! They also take credit cards.

I did not eat at this one but one named La Chaya for breakfast . Sorry. I did see the beautiful restaurant with trees and water pond inside. My visit was in 2013 actually.

We ate here on our second night and it was delish ! My husband had stuffed Ravioli which were made from scratch and myself I had the Lobster Fettuccine with their tomato sauce. The sauce was perfect and the lobster was so tender – cooked to perfection. We met the owners wife who was so nice but the chef, who... More

I went to this place following a couple of friends advice and must say, it was really good! The lobster was delicious! And the risoto was amazing. But service was the best, every detail on the table was really nice. Even the chef himself was concern about making you feel confortable. A must go place!

the Lobster Fettuccini was good although the whole lobster was a surprise - the lobster meat was a tad mushy - my wife had whole lobster and was very happy with her choice - we had a bottle of the house merlot which was quite good and reasonable - the starter Bruschetta was ok - thought could have ben netter...

Went back twice. No menu might concern some about the price, but no worries. The food was great and the price even with wine was very reasonable.

Extensive menu with fresh seafood, great salads and pasta. All outside seating, off the street and under a roof - very quiet and comfortable. Highly recommended!
