“Great food, scene, and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Without a doubt my favorite restaurant in Yelapa. I was recently there for 10 days and ate dinner here a few times. The food is fresh, amazing and very well put together. The ambiance of the restaurant is breathtaking. They hosted a dinner of about 35 family and friends and did so flawlessly. Sergio (the owner) was very welcoming to all of us and welcomed us as family. I strongly recommend this town and restaurant to anyone that is planning on going to that area. Beautiful.

“Unbelievable food and service ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

I was in Yelapa for 8 days and I ate at this restaurant 4 times! EVERY SINGLE TIME I went I was blown away by every dish! I wish I could plop this restaurant in my city so I can go there for my birthday, to celebrate an accomplishment, or just to go out for a GREAT meal!
I also have to mention how wonderful the owner and waiters were. High quality service!

The mussels were the best I have ever had.

Incredible service

“Wonderful restaurant, great food and lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

We ended up at this restaurant out of convenience as it was right downstairs from where we were staying and we are so glad that we did. The food was some of the best that we had in Mexico. I had the steak and it was cooked perfectly, and my fiancé had the burger and raved about it. The prices were not high for yelapa and very low for the quality of food we had. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone going to yelapa, especially if you are looking for something a little fancier.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is where you go for a special meal in Yelapa, without paying special prices. Their prices weren't really higher than other restaurants yet they definitely had the best atmosphere and food. Go on Friday night during high season (make a reservation or get there early) to hear Gabriella sing. If you're itching for a burger, they have an amazing one! But the mahi-mahi is great and so is the ceviche!
