“OMG - delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Definitely recommend this place for a nice dinner (even if it's green season make a reservation!). Calamares for starters are really good! Mix seafood grill was delicious. Ribs have a bit of an "unusual" taste (not so BBQy) but are so tender! If you have any room left: the Hot Fudge Brownie is to die for!
Staff was friendly too. Unfortunately missed the sunset but since the place is up the hill it should be amazing!

“Great view from the deck!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This was an excellent restaurant on the top of a hill with a fantastic view of the sunset. Unfortunately, the night we went the sunset wasn’t much, but it’s still very pleasant. There is a deck that has maybe 9-10 tables and then more tables under cover in the bar area. I had the sea bass (excellent!) that came with a very good salad (greens, ripe tomatoes in a balsamic vinaigrette) and potatoes. My husband had the Mixed Grill which had sea bass and amberjack along with the salad and potatoes. We split a pitcher of Watermelon Coco Loco which was a watermelon juice with coconut rum. It was quite refreshing although we couldn’t really taste the coconut rum (I would not get it again). We also split a bottle of water and had the brownie topped with ice cream for dessert. Our tab came to $61. We paid in U.S. dollars. I would highly recommend this place, even if you don’t go for the sunset. Note that they only take cash. No credit cards. I would suggest you make reservations as the deck gets filled quickly.

“Great view, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Really incredible view of the ocean and the best steak (served with a wasabi / red wine sauce and baby potatoes) that I have ever had. Highly recommended!

This place also serves 1/2 and 1 1/2 litre jugs of your fave mixed drinks - beware of margaritas if you are planning on having an early morning!

“great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The view is amazing. The food is great and specialty drinks refreshing. Make a reservation and request a railing table for the best sunset view.
