We had been there many times in previous years and enjoyed every bite.. The view has not changed but the service and the food have. 9 of us dined there last night and only one of the meals were half decent, We were very disgusted , I would not recommend eating there, If you want the view just order a...

This was our 2nd time going here, and we chose this restaurant as our "goodbye" dinner to our friends. The view is spectacular, the food is very good, and the waiter Jose was very attentive. He even made a special floral centrepiece for our table. I think the prices are up since last January, but if you ask, they might... More

Last year I was introduced to this restaurant but I was less than happy with service and food...that being said, I had a nice surprise (twice) this year! Even though it was considered "low" season when I went, the food was delicious. The view is spectacular here for which some restaurant owners would place service and food secondary because you...

The night we ate here (two couples) there were only a dozen or so other customers. There was one waiter, who had to walk a long way back to the kitchen for drinks or food for each table. The poor guy was run ragged. Fortunately. we were taking pictures of the sunset and the great view of Ocotal Beach. Even... More

I live in Playa Ocotal and I've always wondered what was that building on the very top of the mountain surrounding Ocotal bay, so finally I made the trip up the stairs from the beach. It was worth it! The restaurant patio has a 270 degree view of the ocean. This is the best place to take amazing sunset pictures... More
