We stopped in here for a quick drink before we caught the ferry back to Balboa. I was going to get a cocktail, but there wasn’t one that appealed to me...too many odd ingredient combos. Sometimes less is more! Plus, the people drinking Wiki Whackers...More

Small but beach-y. Typical hole in the wall place. Cool little cave room table. Swordfish tacos were pretty good, would have liked to try other menu items. Nice staff. Enjoyable lunch stop.

1. The drink was $9 when I was there and comes with a hat. 2. It is served in a tall hurricane glass so about 12 oz. 3. I think 6 at the cave table. 4. Email Lisa. Trip Advisor does not allow me to post her email address.
