“Good food, great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We thought the breakfast was good, We ate there several days, though we are not vegetarian.

We liked the fruit smoothies,too.

The service was a bit slow but we loved sitting there. It was vacation. I wouldn't describe the staff as friendly but they didn;t speak English and we don't speak Spanish.

We liked it.

“Worst service ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

I really wanted to like this place as it is a cute place set overlooking playa Santa Domingo. However I must give it my worst rating ever. There were two young persons as wait staff mostly interested in texting while we waited for a menu. There were only three people there yet they mixed up our orders and forgot the pancakes I asked for. Our coffees sat on the counter for several minutes before being served lukewarm and without the milk we ordered that eventually came cold. Ended up waiting over an hour for very disappointing pancakes. During this time our server seemed to be eating her breakfast. Actually only one was served. Have really never done such a negative review of a restaurant but unfortunately this place deserves it.

“Nice drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I enjoyed the fruit batidos as well as the cocktails they make with fresh fruit - I had a tasty little passion fruit number. I am not wild about the food, but then I tend to find vegetarian food more of a good cause than a good thing.

The guys never seem to have change: for crying out loud, sort it out!

“Okay little spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

We stopped here because all the signs outside were in English (we're not fluent in Spanish), but when we sat down, the waiter didn't speak one word of English... The food was really slow, took about a half hour, and they weren't very elaborate meals. Once it did arrive, it was good, although some were cold. Coffee wasn't all that great (tons of grounds in it). Also it gets very windy on that side and if there aren't any seats inside, out in the elements is your only option.

“It was.... Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We were really excited about this place because the menu seemed varied and fun. We went for breakfast and it was... Ok. I had the egg, potatoes and bread. Overall it was tasty and the potatoes were well seasoned, but nothing to write home about. My friend had the fruit plate with yogurt and granola. Sounds good right? Well... The fruit plate was well varied and plentiful but te yogurt was slightly warm... As if it had been left out too long. We also each had an iced coffee but again, just ok. Seemed a little overpriced with smallish portions.
