“Worth checking out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This was our first meal in town,and we enjoyed it.

The chips and guacamole were simple and yummy.

My husband had chicken fajitas that were tasty, and I ordered the "fried fish tacos ". What I expected was tacos containing fried fish, but what I got were fish tacos closed like an empanada and fried. Not what I wanted, but pretty good.

My first PM piña colada, and it was delicious.

The staff was very welcoming and friendly.

“it was just o.k.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

There are a lot of good places to eat in Puerto and this one is just average. Everyone has different taste however being a veteran in this town it isn't our first choice, but it's not bad.

“Excellent fried fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We ate here back in 2009 and made a point of returning when in the area again. You can choose your own fish to be fried, add on different preparations like Veracruz style or garlic (we chose garlic, which is the most popular). Excellent, attentive service in an authentic setting. Highly recommend, even if it is a block off of the beach.

“EFFICIENT INFORMALITY, CHARACTER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Unique informal service that was, at the same time efficient. I loved the fact that I was able to select my own meal from a tray of freshly caught fish to be fried.
Good prices and cold beer.
