High expectations but ok food, really my pineapple juice and their amazing sea view save the day. If you want to relax and have a drink go for it, do not expect a meal to remember.

We went for a quick dinner at the sunset. Beautiful setting on the "quiet" side of playa Zicatela. Friendly service, freshly made ceviche on the spot full of flavour. Few different option on the ceviche but the house is the one we liked the most.

Stick with fish and seafood. Others dishes a little tough. Service is very keen and knowledgable. Mescal presentation with guasno salt a huge hit with the fans in our group. Going back soon

A step up in design. Nicer chairs. Tables and lighting than the usual beach palapa places. Mescal served like flites in a nice wood boat with star fruit much better than traditional orange slices which I dislike. Huge bowl of ceviche. Very tasty. Better yet...More
