“Loved the atmosphere, service and food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We had really positive experience at the Agua Azul a fun atmosphere with great service! The waiter even told us when we ordered too much food, we were sure glad he did because the portion sizes were bigger than average. We had a great time!

Great food, great view, very nice waiters, good choice even for vegetarians, at a pretty reasonable price for the neighborhood.

“Definitely worth a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

On the plus side, the staff is friendly and helpfu; the restaurant has a great second floor setting with a wonderful view; it's a fun atmosphere; and the signature drink is definitely a vibrant blue color! But if I'm being honest, the food is good rather than great. For example, my macadamia-coconut crusted Mahi Mahi was nice and crunchy, but a bit dry and overcooked. Not all the food was like that -- the tuna appetizer was amazing. But you can find better food at other nearby places (e.g., Cafe Milagro). Still, if you're in the area for a few days, this is a pretty good choice for dinner, a 3.5 on a scale of 5.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

The food was just okay. We were seated at large table in the middle near to the stairs facing the road. Not the best. I'm sure if you sat on the other end the view would be better. I wouldn't go back again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

A delicious spot with a lovely view. At lunch, the Fish Tacos were excellent. At dinner, the Summer Rolls and fresh fish were incredible!!
