This is a great place to eat and food is delicious. Staff is very friendly and spoke very good English which makes things a lot easier if you don't speak Spanish

We have been to this restaurant twice in 5 years. The lobster is fantastic!! For $15.00 you can't go wrong. They have musicians in the evening to play for you. The service is wonderful. Really nice people !! I highly recommend this restaurant.

This was the most suprising of all the restaurants we attended, the food, especially the tomato black pepper chicken dish was outstanding. From the presentation, to the flavourful dish and the service was outstanding, the prices were very fair, more so than most.. This little restaurant delivers and you won't be disappointed..
