We stayed just a few blocks away and walked to this cafe after reading all the reviews. I have to agree! The shrimp burger and margarita I had were delicious! There were 6 of us and we all left happy, full and with money left...More

Great ceviche. Sat under a palapa with birds nest above and momma’s feeding their young. There is indoor seating downstairs and a gift shop. It sounds weird but the baked potato with shrimp and a cheese sauce is out of this world.

Nice quite little place with a great view. We sat on the roof top with a view of the marina at sunset. The food and drinks were very good. My favorite is the fish taco, very delicious.

The most creative Mexican menu I've ever seen and I've lived in Los Angeles, San Diego and the San Francisco Area. Technically, it's a "fusion" menu: everything is super-fresh and combines standard Mexican fare with ideas from around the Mediterranean and other world cuisines. Great...More

Loved this place on our last trip (see earlier review) so we were excited to go back a couple times to have all of our favorite items. We went for lunch, and the menu was not the same as before. The Peruvian ceviche was gone,...More

Hi, Thanks for comin and im glad that you still like it, but just for the record, is the same menu, in 6 years we never had chips with mole or peruvian ceviche. Thank you

We ate upstairs in what I’d describe as a coveted, but open deck. It overlooks the marina and we saw a beautiful sunset. It was quite breezy, so we were glad to have worn long sleeves. We got the large order of Basic Shrimp Ceviche...More

It isn't open for breakfast it opens around mid day.. I don't know if it's on East or west side but it is on the dirt road leading up to the big El Ganzo hotel ( that is currently shut whilst they put right the Ofile damage)
