“The best grilled fish in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

While the service can be slow by American standards, it's worth the wait. Chef Leo is a professional chef who makes the best fish with garlic sauce or salsa veracruzana. It's always hard to choose so ask for a side of both.

“Best Shrimp I had on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Stopped in for a shrimp in salsa with chips, and some guacamole; by far the best shrimp we had on the island over ten days. Most seafood on the island tasted surprisingly fishy, but not this place. Shrimp was excellent, and the people very friendly. They implored us to come back and try to the seafood soup but we ran out of time. Would gladly go back.

“A Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Maybe the best food for the price. Very Mexican and very good. I had the grilled fish and followed their advice on how it should be prepared; it was perfect! They treated us like kings; I'm not sure they get alot of American clients...

“Great food, cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Great home-made food, her specialty is the seafood soup (sopa de mariscos), which was outstanding.
Service was excellent, the owner - cook - waitress was adorable, and *very* serviable.
And all of the was at an excellent value
