We’ve been here a few times and highly recommend it. Very busy in the high season so I recommend to go early (around 6-6:30 pm for dinner). Very casual atmosphere with open air seating but covered for rain. Good drinks. Friendly service. Portions are big....More

We loved the El Alambique Beach Front Bar and Grill. We had calamari and cevichi - both excellent. The prices were very reasonable. We will be back!

It’s less than five minutes along the beach or along Isla Verde Ave. You will love the food. I also hear where you are staying is very nice. The beach is beautiful. Have fun!

It is NOT a mile. We just stayed there, very close. Walk on the beach or the sidewalk out front. Turn at the CVS.
