Great food and superb service. We were given free appetizers. The view of the beach and the sunset was beautiful. As we went in the off season the humidity was a bit much but, they had the AC on and our whole time was wonderful.

We always enjoy walking to the Gold Zone from our resort to shop and have to stop at Pancho for a bite to eat or a cold drink. Service is good. Food and price great and the view of the beach is wonderful.
