Bear in mind this is a fast food restaurant in the first place. Expect self service and maybe queuing for getting a nice terrace table if you arrive there at peak times. It gets much nicer when you get a late after beach lunch, for...More

I heard a lot of good stuff about Artico, but it was a disappointing experience to me. They call themselves "Sea fast food", which is a shame. They have one of the best views from the city on the upper deck, but they ruin everything...More

We stopped here twice for the fish'n'chips, 250 pesos for a box of small pieces of battered fried fish and 80 pesos for a small bowl of fries. Fish comes with a selection of 4 different sauces. It is takeaway style dining but very yummy.
