Stone crab

Came way down here for stone crab claws and they didn’t disappoint. Great blue crab ceviches too. Outstanding location on the beach with cold beer

We ordered stuffed fish and spiny lobster dish. Both are just OK. Not that good limonada either. Of course, it is on the beach, tables on the sand, you cannot go wrong with that! I just wished the food was little better.

Good but not excellent, regular rates. In low vacational season they close early on the afternoon, so be aware to schedule your last meal to avoid be hungry.

We found ourselves at the tables on the beach after our flamingo boat. Beers and garlic shrimp were odered and did not disappoint. The plantain appetizer was great too. I could have stayed all day here!

Nice restaurant on the beach. Our fish was one of the best you can dream of (no exageration). The view from the terrace is great as the restaurant is litterally on the beach, close to the tourists boats.

This restaurant is very popular, but we didn't enjoy our meal. My husband and I ordered the shrimp diablo, but the sauce had a funny taste to it. The vegetables were fine, as was the rice, but I wouldn't eat there again.

Food and drinks are very good. Cocktails are even a little cheaper than the place next to it, and same size. I had the conch strips, highly recommended. Not I common dish I can get where I'm from. Service was a bit slow but we did go on a busy day- New Years.

The crab here is delicious and tasted super fresh. My husband also liked the fish filete a la diabla. Service is a bit spotty at times, but the outdoor setting with toes in the sand and eyes on the ocean can't be beat. Beer is cold and prices are super cheap too. We ate here all there nights we were... More
