“Good food, just ok service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The food here was good. The service was a little lackluster. The waitress sat at the bar with her back to us, so we couldn't grab her attention for anything. We figured it was because our Spanish was not so good.

“El Cayuco Restaurant - Good Tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a small restaurant by the beach. You can sit by the beach and enjoy a nice happy hour or dinner. We were walking along the beach and found this place. We tried a few of their tapas and they were great, specially the seafood croquettes We also tried their Mojitos, excellent. The staff was extremelly friendly and courtious.Highly recommend this place for happy hour since we did not have dinner.

“Lucky find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We were looking for a restaurant we subsequently found had closed down and stumbled on El Cayuco by chance. Starters of fried calamari and croquettes were very tasty. But the hilight was a delicious whole bbq'ed fish (chullo) with plantain chips. My partners creole prawns were also very good.
