Visit this place on 1/25/17 night. Cashier and the Bartender that nite overcharged $50 to our bill. No reasonable explanation were given. Careful when visiting.

Dined here several times and we were pleased with the food and the service. Loved their soups and their fish. Place is clean and the balcony offers a view of the Malecon.
