“Fabulous Food, lots of fun, great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We have eaten there often, one of our very favorite restaurants in the area. We love the ambience and the menu choices. The outdoor setting is beautiful. It is fun to be there when there is music to dance to. The owners and staff make you feels truly welcome and pay attention to every need.

“Dine with sax music in the background”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Every Saturday night! Sax music accompanies your dinner, a higher end restaurant for the area.

We went for an after dinner drink and listened to the sax player. After drinking cheap,cervezas all week, we tried a nice brandy and a wonderful cappacino.

We were lucky that they opened for the season our last night in La Penita. What a treat. Nice menu selections, shrimp pasta was beautiful and delicious.

“Overhyped, underdelivered”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This seems to be where white people go to pay high prices for low quality food. Owners are friendly and have good reputation. Stop in a for a coffee after dinner for a good time, but eat somewhere else.
