Find this place and get a plate of street tacos! We had reservations for a big plate dinner and never made it there! Best kept secret on the Island.

Decent street tacos that really spicy for a gringo. I dumped the sauce on and was in for a surprise! One evening we sat and had beer and watched a band. Nice open area.

Loved this outdoor spot, open all hours. Happy hour margs quite good, and staff was fun! Not fancy, but seems popular with the locals...and reasonably priced.

This is a convenient outdoor patio cafe, with mostly Mexican-style food and burgers. The food is made to order (nothing reheated). You may have to wait for your meal, but it's good.
