The location was absolutely gorgeous, the TA reviews wer good, the food was cheap but the taste was kinda terrible for three of our four dishes. The lobster was under-cooked, the shrimp was rubbery and overcooked, but the fish was good. The service was slow and not very friendly. We only went here because we read good reviews on TripAdvisor... More

We had lunch here after a flamingo tour. It is a pretty palapa right on the beach. We enjoyed our meal with our feet in the sand & an unobstructed view of the sea. We enjoyed a cocktail, salsa & guacamole with chips, & fresh fish with rice. The food was good, friendly service & the prices were reasonable.

We were on a 3-week tour of The Lost World of the Mayans and had lunch here outside on the beech. The fish was fresh. I don't drink beer and the wine they brought me had "turned". The owner then brought a new bottle. We were all impressed with the service.

Lovely location on the beach. Excellent sea food! I ordered the octopus and absolutely loved it. The guacamole is also very good

We went twice to this restaurant in May 2013. Good simple fresh food (we had fish), nothing sophisticated. Service is minimal, but we don't speak Spanish, and quite fast. Acceptable value for money. You are directly on the beach of this very laid-back, unpretentious fishing village. Great sunset, but it can get quite windy in the evening.

Basic restaurant that serves very fresh fish and seafood. Good, accommodating service. Eating right on the beach was a very nice experience, particularly after enjoying our boat tour of the mangroves and the flamingos. To find the restaurant, park at the town's main plaza, walk straight to the beach, and turn right. You'll see the restaurant's sign after walking approximately... More

The menu is quite diverse at this little establishment. I wanted to try various items such as the conch, breaded octopus, etc. However, I settled on a lighter meal of a sautéed fish fillet in mojo al ajo (garlic sauce). Very well prepared and not overcooked. It came with steamed veggies and very tasty rice. The prices are reasonable. My... More
