First night first pick!

Service was warm and friendly! Ordered the Cadejo dark beer and loved it! Enjoyed the conq salad with plantains! Perfect weather in an outside setting.

The food is good but the prices are steep and the waiter had a bad attitude as if he didnt want to be there. There was also a hair in one of our entrees. This is unacceptable for any restaurant. I will not be coming back any time soon.

Menu is extensive and there are many varieties of seafood, bing the speciality of the house. Good value as prices are average but the food is abundant.

It's a bit busy most of the time, so wait times tend to be long, but if you have time, their sea food is the best. Try the washimi that is kind of salvadoran sashimi.

Our guide recommended this place and he was right on target. Lovely patio-like dining. Fresh fish. I got simply grilled corvina that came with a nice sauce on the side. Great ceviches.

The locals call it Beto's, and there's another one at the coast. I visited the one in Zona Rosa. Beautiful presentation, delicious food, great service. A meal for two with appetizer, several drinks, and two entrees ran about $35.

Well that would be the only reasonable explanation why it takes so long to get food served, and one of the worst customer service I have ever seen. Although the food is great, I will not deny what is true. Recommended washimi, ceviches, and pizza.
