Great option in the beach area for tacos and Mexican food. Super casual spot, nothing fancy! Surf videos playing on several TVs while you dine. Great for families with small children. This restaurant does have options for Gluten Free and Vegan as well!

Great food and Margheritas. Great service. You wouldn't find this place by accident but it is worth finding. Ask a local for directions.

Great service (Gustavo is the man!) and food & drink. Fun environment, especially if you like surfing memorabilia. They even made us Chile Rellenos via advanced request (my husband's go-to Mexican entree). We go there often and always leave happy.
