Terrific food and drinks! We tried the sesame tuna (on special) and the chicken with peanut sauce. Both were fantastic. After a day of travel we were in need of a good meal. Margarita and Mojito were on point as well. We will be back!

This place came highly recommended by our hosts at Surf Costa and it did not disappoint. We actually are there twice. The tuna special was spectacular as was the Caribbean stewed chicken. Warm, friendly service.
