This place is the bomb for Fish and Chips and the crafted cocktails are delicious. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED.

I had such high expectations for this place especially given the reviews. We were so excited.The location and setting is fabulous! BUT...The food took an hour to arrive with no checking in on us or apologies (they only give 1 hour 15 minutes to eat)...and our fish and steak entrees WERE COLD. They had been sitting out too long before being brought to our table. Cold. Cold fish, cold steak, cold potatoes, cold vegetables. Without the views and location, did not live up to the hype at all.More

This restaurant has a beautiful outdoor oceanfront view. The food was good - fish tacos were the best! Service was a little slow, but very kind service from everyone. Popular hang out place for those visiting from the states. Will definitely go here again for...their fish tacos!!More

The restaurant faces the beach and you get to watch the surfers ride the waves while you are enjoying a tasty meal. Service was friendly and attentive. Would return .

If you like the idea of literally eating over the ocean, this is your spot. Calamari was great. Rest of the food was OK. Definitely go here for the view and experience.

Excellent lunch with a view. We enjoyed watching the surfers. The fish tacos were outstanding and the drinks were delicious. Especially the Passionista.

This was my first stop upon arriving in Rincon, swam in the rough surf for a while and then went up and had a few beers and some ceviche. I have to say that the atmosphere was perfect and the ceviche turned out to be...a whole lot better than I thought it would be for what appears to be a surfers bar. Next time will probably have a full dinner, as well as a few more beers. Great atmosphere to hang out after visiting the water.More
