The ceviche is an absolute must. The atmosphere consists of waves, sand, stars and lights. The organic greens and quinoa salad were both fantastic as well as the fish... More

The cocktails were creative, the food was delicious and the view of the sunset was incredible. Highly recommend the passion fruit mojito at sunset.

My daughter has Celiac disease and they were very knowledgeable and knew the items she could eat. The food was a little pricey but worth it for the peace of mind for her safety. Great location on the beach where you can watch the waves lap up on the ocean while waiting for your meal and eating.

Great for date night or a memorable family feast. Come at sunset and plan to stay a while. Service can be a little slow, but you won't be in a rush to go anywhere once you're here. Great flatbreads and pizza. Love the fish tacos! Like many places around here, it's cash only.
