Fish Tacos and Garlic Shrimp appetizer were awesome! Busy because of the time of day but service was quick and friendly. Had a variety of interesting non alcoholic drinks as well!

Found almost by accident, we ended up eating here 4 times during a ten day visit to Puerto Vallarta. The restaurant is right beside the beach with a choice of dining under umbrellas on the sands or in a dining room. The service was wonderfully friendly. The food excellent - not exactly fine ding, but beautifully prepared and uniformly tasty... More

The sunset is beautiful from here. They pull the shades up and it's right on the beach, off Mexico Street. Their appetizers are great and the price is perfect for a very causal lunch or dinner.

One of the more popular watering holes on the beach. We love coming here to use the beach chairs or lounge chairs, get a drink and relax by the beach. We recommend the Sangria's, they are nice and big. And for those who are on a bit of a cleanse, their virgin mojito is amazing. Sorry we can't comment on... More

Fun restaurant right on the beach. Wonderful for watching sunsets and even has tables on the beach if you desire to be even closer to the action. Food is straightforward and good. Worth a visit but only at sunset.

Terrible service and just mediocre food. When the service aspect was brought to the managers attention, he started rubbing my shoulders and told me "calmate". As with many restaurants here in Vallarta, service is not their strong suit.
