“Excellent and classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This is a nice place to relax away from the business of the main street, enjoy the beachside restaurant in a classy way. We would have never found this place if a friend hadn't told us about it, as it is way down the main beach road. Don't walk there at night, as it is rumored to be a bit more dangerous because it is on a dark, lonely edge of town. Still, so worth it if you taxi or have a big stick. It is only a ten minute walk to town. Enjoy!

“Great beach dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

My husband I are the eat at 6pm dinner type. Most of the places we went were dead at 6pm (we were there May 19-26).

We had an appetizer (plantains, yummy), surf & turf, and fish and rice. The rice was my favorite food from our entire trip!! We also drank quite a few Mojito's (I highly recommend them).

For San Juan del Sur this is a little bit of a pricey place, but well worth it.

“Great location and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

The location is right on the water with views on the north end of town. We both had lunch sandwichs, fish and chicken which were excellent. Service was good and fast. Very clean and friendly.
