We stopped here for lunch on a recommendation from our hotel. The view was absolutely stunning....until the boose cruisers from the Cancun hotels started showing up non-stop at that pier. Each boat dumped off 20-50 people, half of which started lighting up cigarettes upwind after getting off the dock. The service was quick, food came fast and had a great presentation. I ordered the mango shrimp and my wife ordered breaded shrimp. The rice, vegetables, and shrimp had an odd flavor that I couldn't put my finger on...something they must use to cook everything with...it wasn't a pleasant flavor. We really weren't impressed at all. When we got the bill for 680 Pesos I was even less impressed. 2 dinners, 2 waters, and chips and salsa/guacamole.....what a rip off. The only reason it gets any stars is location/views and good service. WAY overpriced compared to any other comparable restaurant on the Island...and flavor had a lot to be desired.
