“Nice Location, Great food and Frappe's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I went there, due to a friend's Birthday, and the waitress Alicia gave us a great service; the location was near at the beach and the food was delicious, with order a single dish,it can eat more than two people, at a reasonable price. They have game room for childrens, pool tables, and slot machines to play... and last,they have a dj with a louder latin music. It's a very nice place to eat with your friends and family, or with a big group. I will definitely come back again...

“Ok food ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

I live in the area so I decided to take the family to eat on a Sunday. The place is nice and open air for the kids to run around outside with some rides and a little farm area with some animals. Getting to the food it was ok they serve you massive amounts of food which I personally don't find appealing. The churasco was tasty and well cooked but they serve that with a pound of greasy fries. The ribs my daughter ordered where dry with not much flavor. The service and drinks were ok. Overall it's ok food and the kids where entertained really won't visit again maybe to get a drink

“Once was enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

The restaurant is a big place, with indoor and outdoor seating, big tables and close to the beach, so the outdoors had a nice breeze. We started with the house sangria, which was quite weak, an Oreo shake for my grandson and just beer and other beverages for the rest. We ordered the tendedero, which is Spanish for clothesline. It had sirloin, skirt steak, pork, chicken and chorizo hanging from it, most of the meat over cooked, with the exception of the sausage, which was very good. It came with yellow rice and fries. The service was ok, although it took over 40 minutes for the food to arrive and the place was not full. This was our first time and no more. The novelty has worn off.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This restaurant has a varied menu ans single plates and big meals that can be enough for 6 people for a good price. It is very clean, has a good atmosphere and you can walk from the beach. They take a while to bring the food but at least there are pool tables in the restaurant and a petting zoo behind the place where you can spend time waiting.
