Fantstic stop on our tour of the island. Great food, great view, fun building. You feel totally secluded on a beautiful beach. Worth the drive for sure!

This funky little Mexican restaurant sits on a bluff with a beautiful view of the ocean. The biggest margaritas I've ever seen are served and are shared by many people with the help of drinking straws. Fresh fish is definitely the specialty of the house...More

The garlic shrimp was very good. It was a large platter of peel and eat shrimp. You can write on the walls, so please leave your mark. We enjoyed our drinks as well.
