My sister and I had dinner here last year and were very satisfied with the meal. The place is beautiful, very rustic and we had a table overlooking the Buccoo Bay. What a view! It was a Sunday so towards the end of the evening...More

Oh what a disappointment from last year! The place looks run down, the food was only OK the service average. Apparently there has been a change of ownership. There are a few other decent restaurants near so avoid this one until you read they have...More

I went here and was disappointed. There was no parking available. Although the rustic setting was a nice plus, the tables were rickety. The food was ok but nothing to die for. First and last for me.

This was supposed to be a rustic restaurant on the sea with good food... Instead it was downright grungy. Old unmatched furniture. Disorganized, and dirty. We took foreign guests with such deep regret by the end of the evening. One flustered waitress alone serving. Not...More

The restaurant is very simple and overlooks the fishing boats which come in every night. The food is excellent with generous portions. I recommend the ceviche appetizer and the nylon pool main course. They also have a Venezuelan dessert which is great

I was disappointed with the restaurant. Because of the great reviews I had high expectations. The restaurant is in an excellent location overlooking a quaint fisherman's dock. Nice Seabreeze and open air styling. The decor of the restaurant was also fishy. Old tables and chairs...More
