The setting, on the beach, nestled among the palm trees coupled with a very friendly waitstaff started our lunch on the right track. We the whole grilled octopus and it was served on a white platter accompanied by an arugula salad. The octopus was grilled...to perfection, was quite tender and more than enough for 2 people to share for lunch. We also ordered the seafood paella and it was served in the pan with ample amounts of shrimp, tiny scallops, and fish along with a tasty well spiced (not too hot) rice. We would have given the restaurant 5 stars except that when we ordered, the waiter told us the paella would take 30 minutes and it took close to an hour before it was served. He did come over and apologize and the setting overlooking the beach at a shaded table among the palm trees made for an enjoyably relaxing wait. In addition we were back on the beach (which was only about 25 meters from the restaurant) in a couple minutes to enjoy the afternoon sunshine and warm waters.More

The views are stunning. Order the tuna tar tar and calamari as appetizers. The tuna is delicate and the calamari is tender and the breading is delightful. The crispy sea bass was light and tasty; the flat steak was flavorful. While they didn’t have the...ice cream to go with the brownie dessert, it really didn’t matter. You can’t beat this value for the price. And you don’t have to be a guest to enjoy this gem.More

I’ve been in this restaurant 4 times already, I really love the great service they have and quality of food and drinks. When I heard they changed their chef I was scared, but the new one if as good (or even better) than the previous,...he actually came to our table and told us his plans, he is an excellent chef and very friendly, his name is Vicente. Their cocktails are excellent too, I recommend their Citric Gin Tonic with Bombay Sapphire. And for meals their Grilled Octopus, Chef’s Nachos and tostones.More
