Really getting into eating whole fish this trip and this one just cooked on the grill was very good. Have them remove the head unless you are really into that "delicacy".

My family has been coming to this restaurant since the late 1990;s and we have never left less than stuffed with great seafood and enjoyment from the experienced staff. Our last visit in 2014 showed that there had been some renovations and new fixtures, but the food was still ample and marvelous. Their fresh shrimp and lobster will make you... More

We had a great time with our university aged kids. Restaurant and bar on the beach, looking out at the ocean. Talented bartender and waiter who allowed us to sample and share different items amongst our family. The shrimp was fantastic!

Sunset was wonder, as was the food. The amount of food on the plate was way to much for my appetite. If you want a great drink and show, order a flaming Spanish coffee.

Have been coming to the restaurant since 1991! This family owned business has been our favorite place on the beach to have great seafood! We love Reuben & Beatriz and can't wait until we are able to return. Roger & pat
