The lobster burrito was amazing! The pupusa were the best on the island. The spinach was my favorite! Great service!

If you don't eat here you have missed the best place for great food at a price you can afford! YUM! They have moved from middle street to back street!

Lobster burrito and pupusas. I am sure the other menu items are tasty but these two items were delicious. The place has moved so it was a little hard to find. The people on this island are very friendly and helpful. I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.

This is the perfect location for a group, whether you're looking for a budget meal or for a huge lobster dinner. You can easily fill up on less than $10 USD eating the delicious pupusas. During lobster season, this is the best value for whole tails. Something for everyone.

They are known for their lobster but the rotisserie chicken is AMAZING! You get a whole chicken, tortillas and salsas for $10 USD.. We picked it up for lunch one day and enjoyed on the beach with some Belikin!

We were recommended to try this restaurant. I got the lobster burrito and wow! It must have had 3 lobster tails in it. Delicious. It was a little warm in the restaurant, it is outside.

Cholo's recommended this place, and boy am I glad. HUGE big takeout container stuffed to the brim with seafood: stone crab claws, mussels, fresh fish, shrimp. Very flavorful, and the price was great as well. Definitely worth the walk to Back Street.

Came in for a later dinner one night during my honeymoon based on a recommendation from a tour guide. My wife and I split the lobster burrito and 4 papusas. The lobster burrito was HUGE and had way more lobster than I imagined, especially when you consider it was only $27 Bz. However, the papusa's stole the show. It was... More

This is a very good restaurant with delicious papusas, ceviche, fish, shrimp or lobster tacos and nachos with a ridiculous amount of shrimp. It has moved from the middle street to the second street from the Main Street along the water. The bar tender makes a perfect capirhina ( not sure of spelling but you know what I mean). One... More
