Went there for dinner and everyone really enjoyed their food and our server was really great. Then the next morning went there for breakfast which was just ok, but the prices were good (about $5 a person).

Everything was amazing, best guacamole I've ever had. The drinks were great and the service was incomparable. Having tried other restaurants in the area, this is the one you should choose:)

Open ever day except Wednesday when we only serve breakfast 6.30-9.30am. Thanks!
I am looking to book a vacation! Your hotel looks beautiful! Are your chefs able to cook gluten free meals? My husband is allergic and that is a concern for us.
