“Good, but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

OK meal, yet a way too overpriced comparing to other amazing seafood restaurants. Also, service is VERY slow. It took 1 hour 10 min to get our food done.... If you are hungry go to other place!

P.S opened only until 5 PM (lunch only)

“Fantastic lunch, good beach to chill on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

I stayed on San Andres for 6 nights and ate here 3 times it was that good. Food was fresh and tasty, piña colada delicious. You must try the tempura (fried) calamari, best I have had in a long time. Shame some of the evening restaurants in town don't match this quality of food. The place has it's own beach to eat or chill on, what's to dislike?
Note it's only open until 5pm.

“Great seafood and right on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

This restaurant is on a beautiful white sandy beach with fantastic views. We ordered 4 seafood main courses and they were delicious. The service was very good and the bill including a bottle of wine and 3 beers for 4 of us came to US $120. We felt very chilled out and would certainly recommend it.

“Delicious food”

Great sea food and varied menu just in front of the sea. Chairs at the beach. While you tan, you can get the best sea food
