We ordered the mixed ceviche, entire fried grouper, as well as fish and shrimp tacos. Every bite of it was amazing. Our waiter Evan was fantastic. Portions were huge. Our son said “best flan ever.” Highly recommend.

All manner of fish and seafood are delicious at this restaurant. I think the ceviche is the best traditional style in town. It's also one of the only beach side restaurants where you will see locals eating.

On the Beach, Daily fresh Seafoods, you get to actually select your own fish that they cook up beautifully. They have fresh guacamole, sauces, rice dishes, salads. A very friendly bunch. We would definitely go back.
