Some of the freshest and best fish on the island. Off the beaten path. Don't come here if you want white tablecloths and fancy surroundings. If you are looking for really good fresh fish and a relaxed atmosphere this is the place for you. Fantastic.

We made our trek to this little off the beat place to get our fix on fresh seafood and fish. Service was average. Food and beer were great. My daughter ordered octopus had said it was the best she ever had.

Once again, our favorite lunch spot. Fresh fish, great flavors and friendly staff. Worth the trek into the residential area to get authentic food and get away from the crowded tourist traps.

Love the colorful art work that was on the chairs. Scuba influence. Some of the seafood i was disappointed with the quality. It tasted fishy. We had a large group and they accomodated and served us well. This is a very remote location and was...More
