We recently had dinner here and it was amazing! If you don't try the Parmesan incrusted Mahi Mahi, you will regret it for the rest of your life. Amazing!

Dine in the restaurant or on the street with good friends and eat fresh foods cooked individually for you . Alexandro has skill and pride in all he presents. You will not be disappointed. He is open for lunch as well and has some lighter fare

We ate here twice it was so good! The seafood is fresh and perfectly prepared. We had the Baja tacos, ceviche, octopus and tuna and everything was to die for. We also met the owner/chef who went to culinary school in California and his training shows in the food. Drinks, food, service everything here was 5 star and definitively a... More

I walked in to this beautiful little restaurant and enjoyed the most delicious bowl of Sopa de tortilla & a large glass of freshly squeezed Limonata. I was so impressed with how clean the kitchen was because it is open to the public and you can watch how professional & caring the chef is. Beautiful colours within & the welcoming... More

We ordered the Parmesan crusted Mahi Mahi and what came out looked like it came from a high-end seafood restaurant with generous portions. Each dish is meticulously organized on the plate and the flavor shows how much care goes into each dish. Our... More

The visit started with the owner helping us with change for the taxi. We stayed for dinner on what was the off season. The food..... Was magnificent. We had a goats cheese entrée and followed it up with seared tuna. The tuna was perfect with coriander crust.

Upon entering you feel as if you are underwater. You will be submerged in blue surrounded by turtle paintings. The specials are hand written on a board as talk as you and they will bring it over to your table for you to ponder. If you hit it at the right time, tuna might be available and you can't pass...

The food has always been good. Seafood fresh caught and they make one of the best burgers ( several choices) in town. Good wine list and a good well made assortment of drinks. Service has always been good. Located near other restaurants , bars and shops.
