“Nice Meal, Friendly Service, Affordable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

The place was packed but we were able to sit in the back, on the patio. Although they were busy the service was attentive and efficient. Food was good. We had the octopus chorizo appetizer to start. Husband had the beer battered shrimp and I had the shrimp tacos al pastor. My dish was very, very good. It's definitely a fish restaurant and had a lot of variety on the menu. We will definitely return.

“Good prices”

We ate at the sister restaurant in PV. Right on the ocean. Good food, and good prices. Friendly staff. Will definitely try the NV location next time.

“Good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food was superb and very reasonably priced. I wnt ther to eat lobster, but they had run out of lobster that night. They asked me to come back the next day, and when I did the waiter remembered me and had kept the lobster which was wild caught so too was the shrimp. The drinks too were reasonably priced

“Another affordable gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This place came well recommended and our new friends were right. I ate the Red Snapper, my wife had a VERY COOL house special of fish on its own cooking stone and my daughter had a very good burger. The Strawberry margaritas were well poured and the service was pretty good. The bar looked fun, though we did not go into it. We got out the door for $60 US with a good tip. It was also completely safe to walk from the Grand Mayan Resort at night for those worried about the safety of Mexico. We will be back next year for sure.
