“Great Theme”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

A restaurant built around an abandoned C130 transport, great story. A relaxed atmosphere. The view over the water was great, para sailors, birds, boats and monkeys. The drinks were delicious as was the food.

“Great terrace and very good fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We went to el avion tonight and were extremely happy with food and service. Not sure what the previous comments were referring to! Of course there are cheaper places in town, but the quality of the food was excellent! The view is amazing. Strongly recommended

“yeah, the airplane place...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

OK, the Iran-Contra plane was cool and historic. but the restaurant itself is very attractive and the staff attentive. I enjoyed the grilled mahi mahi. This was our last night with the whole group with G Adventures and it was a fitting and enjoyable venue.

Smart, good choice of food, bit more expensive than the local places we tried. Very suitable for the American market!

surprised at some of the reviews - we had a fantastic seafood lunch - atmosphere is great - you don't get a better view of the Pacific - large servings - good food.
