I paid $13 for shrimp with coconut sauce served with rice. Food was bland, very basic, regular size serving, should have been much cheaper for what I got.

Large servings, Fresh fish & grilled skirt steak over open fire. We really enjoyed visiting this restaurant located in Los Kioscos. A closed off street located an easy walk just few blocks from the port. The service is excellent. The chef William is onsite and the wait staff attentive & friendly. The plates are a great bargain with huge servings.... More

We had dinner in this place. I had shrimp in coconut sauce and it was excellent. This restaurant is on street where most seafood places are. The street is very crowded and noisy. Price of food is very adequate to the amount and the quality. Service could be better.

Had shrimp in coconut sauce with rice. Pretty basic, not very impressive. Could have used more flavor and vegetables.

While the people were friendly and accommodating, we were pretty disappointed in the amount of a quality of food. We heard from several people to try this place, but can't figure out why.

The best place to taste the famous and local encocado of labster or camaron. They serve it with Rice and frijoles. They also serve it really fast. Great food at a fair price!

We ate the coconut flavored langostino at the recommendation of some locals. It was delicious and reasonably priced

We enjoyed our shrimp and fish in coconut sauce, and the owner even brought over an extra bowl of coconut sauce without asking which was great. We did think it was a little pricey though at 11 and 13 dollars respectively, and those were some of the cheapest menu options.

A great spot to people watch and eat great food. We all enjoyed the shrimp and rice in coconut sauce. It's one of the many places found in the kiosk area. I had heard about it and was disappointed to find it closed our first two nights in town. Happy it opened before we left!

It's like a street food joint....with a small kitchen and most of the seating outdoors. It's a couple of blocks inland (off the main street where most of the "nicer" restaurants are). The food is excellent, fresh and cheap. ($15 for a pair of lobster tails).
