Our waiter, Juan Mendoza, was excellent and responded to our every need. The food was on par with any elegant restaurant in Europe or the USA. Soothing music... More

Me and my wife visited the crab house as we had just come off a speedboat trip. I ordered Lobster and my wife ordered steak. The service was great but when my Lobster turned up there was more prawns on than Lobster than meat and my wife steak was medium rare when she ordered well done.

We celebrated our 14th anniversary and they presented us a delicious cheesecake and berry dessert and sang to us. Sat outside on the deck and the ambiance and music... More

Excellent octopus fajitas. Overfried shrimp, mushy croquettes and greasy, bland pasta. Nice outdoor terrace. Ok service.
