“Beautiful restaurant, great service and inventive menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We were only staying their two nights and ate here both nights for dinner. The menu was amazing and boasts many dishes we've never heard of before because of how they incorporate local ingredients and how they interpret traditional dishes like chicharons (fried pig skin). Their mojitos are delicious, even sans alcohol for those who can't drink. The decor is beautiful, modern yet tropical. There was a wedding there one night, so they set up a general eating area on the beach for customers, which was beautiful (but there were some mosquitoes). They will also serve you while you're on the beach, so that was a plus. If you want to be able to try as many things as possible, then order the small plates. They really are big enough for one person, without being too much. Note, you may hear one or two coquis (local frogs). Their "singing" can be a bit loud, but you get used to it.

“wedding weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Ate here for several dinners/breakfasts and hosted a wedding dinner here - not a bad word to say about the food. Service can be slow for large groups (except for the wedding dinner, which was perfectly executed), but plan accordingly, the food is worth the wait.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Went there with my wife TWICE, on 10/21/2013 and aain on 11/03/2013. We ad the house frozen sangria and a hummus platter. Both were good and the service was very good also. The view of the beach was very nice and you can spend hours there and not notice that time was flying. We really enjoyed it. We also had Mahi Mahi and chuletas kan kan (a special cut of pork chops).
On 110/03/2013 we retuned and had a pizza an hummus. Of course, more frozen sangria. This was when returning from a stay at Rincon Beach Resort.
We plan to visit this restaurant in the near future. It is not inexpensive but the food, drinks and the view are worth it.

“Very nice upscale el fresco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Great atmosphere and the food is excellent. The pizza is authentic wood fire with great fresh mozerlla and the entrees imaginative Latin and creole twists to continental items. The cocktails are exquisite and the flights of wines are fanciful.
