“Reasonably priced and established open-air restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2009

Only open for dinner and mostly under a tent, the ambiance is interesting at best with plastic chairs, folding tables etc. But the food has always been good (been eating there every January for about 6 years) and is prepared on a grill and in a makeshift kitchen. BYOB is welcome. A variety of brochetas made it popular and it remains the key however the Moles (stews) are awesome with grande portions served boiling hot in mochahates (sp?). Rack of ribs are also very good. Lots of chips and a big variation of dips (some devilishly HOT!) make for a great experience before dinner along with a free serving of bean soup. Located west of the Nissan dealership and not easily seen from the busy street. Near the McDonalds, Sam's Club etc and about 2 blocks from the beach.

“A place where a 30 min meal can turn into an eternity...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2009

I was recommended this place by someone who used to like it a lot. However, this person warned me that while it was once a great place, it was going downhill. So I decided to venture here and it was true.

The food is just average (they were running out of prawns on a Sunday night!, so I had the fillet brocheta) and the service is quite slow and unfriendly.

It took nearly 30 minutes to be waited on. A larger group arrived just after me and I believe they were familiar with the place and people, as one lady actually went to the kitchen to grab glasses for the table as they were not being served either! No matter how familiar you are with a place, that should never happen.

The place is overstaffed but only two women were serving tables. The food arrived quicker than the bill and the change, which the latter took another 30 minutes to arrive. No issues with the amount received, simply slow.

Not worth a visit, and will not return there again.

“Beware”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2009

Food is really good but watch out for the bill and the change when you pay. The amounts were not significant but it was the principal. The second time we ate a Las Brochetas when we paid the bill and were shorted 10 pesos when we got our change. The next time the price on the menu for the item I ordered was 95 pesos but when we got the bill the charge was 120 pesos. We questioned this and were shown a different menu with white sticker covering the price with 120 hand written on it. The wait staff there does not speak any English and since our Spanish is limited we paid but want to make others aware.
