Wow! First I want to mention the service, Juan G our server was outstanding. We appreciate him so much for going above and beyond to make sure we know the size fish to buy, that I got my extra plantain, Very attentive, we went off...road in the daytime and the Jeep light was covered with mud, Juan bring us some water and before I could take it from him he said I’ll do it and he wash those lights off very quick, I was just amaze at his approach. Now can someone tell me what’s up with the cornbread? It must be the national bread because it is everywhere you go but I must tell you that the taste is consistent. The fish was also amazing. Thank you for been so hospitable. Five starMore

When we are on vacation we try to find local places with local recipes. Our cab driver recommended this place and we weren’t dissatisfied at all. We started with friends cornbread (which I will try to do this when we’re back home) was delicious we...ordered a second one. Their fish ceviche was so fresh and also delicious. Our server Ginna helped us with our choices, we ordered a fish platter with fish cake and fried shrimp served with rice, plantains, fries and coleslaw and “today’s catch”. At the end we didn’t have any room for desert. Great people, amazing food.More

My kids loved this place so much, we had to order a second plate of grilled mahi-mahi. Just the BEST you'll ever have. The adults had the barracuda. I'm not an adventurous eater, but wow - it tasted like steak! Try it! Great service, clean,...friendly, won't break the bank.More

We had lunch,service was excellent. Enjoyed the fried shrimp and french fries. Daughter enjoyed the soup and coconut shrimp. We sat near the entrance, not sure how large how big it actually was as beyond the windows it appeared dark within. They did offer a...selection of mixed drinks fruity and sweet.More
