“Excellent gluten free fish tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

They are very GF knowledgeable. We ate there 3 times as the fresh mahi-mahi tacos were delish. Also excellent exotic margaritas.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We ate here one night during our vacation between Christmas and New Year's. It was crowded, but we were seated soon after our arrival by friendly employees. The waitress was friendly without going overboard. Now for the food. I had the paella and it was awesome. It was big enough that we could have shared it. Fantastic flavor and yummy seafood cooked just right. Can't remember what hubby had, but he enjoyed it very much. More expensive than a lot of places on the North Shore, but the best meal we had.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

My family and I were on the North Shore for Christmas and we had read about Luibueno's in Surfer Magazine. We had the best dinner. We loved the Jalapeno tequila drinks.

We live on the East Coast and have eaten at the best restaurants in Philadelphia and New York and we loved this establishment.

We have friends that have lived on the North Shore for a very long time and they said this would be their top choice for date night.

It's a must on the North Shore.

“not a great experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Cold food, waitress who was a functional idiot and lousy atmosphere don't stop here unless you can tolerate horrible service and lousy food. Maybe I stopped at the place that does the catering for my dogs kennel in error.,,,,,
