I think its the economic slowdown. It seems that they have laid off a lot of staff due to lack of business. The food is still good and good portions, but the service staff is non existent. Just getting a glass of water is an effort.

There is a great view, unfortunatelly the sevice was so bad that the eating out experiece was a disaster. We had to look for a seat ouselves, wait so long for a waiter that we cosider a couple of times to leave, and the food....so and so. In summary, its a nice place, run like a fast food with prices...

Amazing food, fresh seafood, fish broth with a great taste, very nice service and, best of all, the great view! Get there about an hour before sunset and you'll witness one of the best! Will be back there soon.

The restaurant has definitely a beautiful view. However, I believe we were misled while waiting to take a trip in La Paseadora (about a 30 min trip around the bay and mangroves). Juan, the owner of both the restaurant and the Paseadora, told us (we were a group of about 15) to wait in the restaurant for the boat, which... More

Ordered appetizer and waiter would not place order until we ordered the entree. We asked for mixed seafood enpanadillitas and were given only shrimp filled. I would not return or recommend it.

I've been coming to this restaurant since the mid-80s when the chef was Ladi who had since retired. I admit that I come because the water view is incomparable. I don't come for the food. Over the years I've been served canned vegetables, minuscule salads, and now worst of all the food is just bland. I mourn the loss of... More

While the view was to die for, the food and service were a disaster. I'd wonder if we ordered the wrong items but there were four of us and we each ordered a different dish. The mofongo was fine but each of the three other seafood items were completely overdone. Given the price point ($20-27/entree), this was disappointing. The service... More

This is a great family style resuarant. The prices are higher than you'd expect for the casual atmosphere. Must eat the crab which is there thing.
