“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

My husband & I really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was great & beautifully presented. Service was attentive & everyone spoke English (which was helpful as our Spanish is non-existent!). The atmosphere was amazing - colorful little fairy lights twinkling in the trees, waves pounding on the beach, latin music playing all made for an exotic holiday feel. The only downside was the TERRIBLE road you had to travel to get to the restaurant...rough, dusty and narrow - not for the faint of heart!
