I have eaten here twice and both times I have been very impressed by the food. The presentation was gorgeous and the food delicious. It's an elegant restaurant though sometimes the noise from the Malecon can put a damper on the otherwise lovely ambiance.

We wanted to dress up and out to eat. A couple locals in Isabel Sangonda told us about this place. Food was fabulous. A little pricey on food and beverages. But it was tasty. Staff was very friendly.

Tastefully decorated upscale restaurant. The focaccia bread was amazing. The wahoo was good and the carnitas were fantastic. The key line pie was solid.

We arrived for dinner early, because we were going to do tour of bio bay. We all had specials. The wahoo that I had was excellent. Service was very good. I may return again before I leave. That should sum it up!

Great food...we ate mostly the specials: soup of the night was a lobster bisque, also had a sushi roll appetizer, and snapper main course. All was incredible/tasty. Service was great. Not an inexpensive place...but worth it!
