I only stop by for a beer when at the beach, the service is good, the serving girls are attentive and the price is the same as everywhere else.

Our entire group loved this meal! I had the lasagna and it was so on point! A friend had a steak and dubbed it the best steak of her life! I would definitely suggest checking this place out - even if staying at a resort - it was a nice change up for us with truly delicious food!

We were staying at the Gran Ventana resort and decided to try a place outside of the resort and the concierge recommended this place. We had a lovely lobster dinner and chocolate fondue.

A friend brought me there to eat. The food was great. The service was very good. We were sitting outside on the second floor. Could hear the water from the beach but couldn't see it due to night time. WQould go there again

Long story short, the restaurant is located on the beach. Such convenient and delightful location. The service is mediocre. The food is very basic and very expensive for what you will get. I ordered a Greek salad for 10 $. My partner a clubsandwich for 13 $. My Greek salad said on the menu feta cheese, black olive, onion, tomato... More
