Staff was very friendly and the food was reasonably priced but the food was OK. Ceviche was not good at all and we are very easy to please. The octopus however was excellent!

Food was great and reasonable priced. Service was excellent. We brought our very picky eater nephew and he loved buttered fish. My sister had an excellent shrimp cocktail and I had camarones al ajillo

The staff are really friendly and the atmosphere is super relaxed (tv screens showing football vibe). The food is pretty good and the portions are enormous. Great for an easy, chilled night out.

Great food - fish was good and lobster great too. Good value for money (although lobster was on the expensive side). Friendly staff. Big restaurant and very quiet on a Monday evening. Ceviche is supposed to be amazing!

This restaurant was exceptional in its Langosta(lobster) and also it's fish tacos. The server asked if I wanted medium or large lobster. I said large and he brought out 3 very large tails. We could have skipped the tacos, which were truly delicious, but we...More
