if you visit Salinas, you've got to dine here. 1. customer service is fantastic. 2. food is tasty- no complaint there and quite a bit of variety. 3. quite casual, kid friendly. 4. opposite the beach.... location, location, location.. 5. price point is excellent

Lovely spot with a nice view of the water in an well established restaurant. Excellent fish and other dishes rice shrimp, corvina, all seafood fixed a variety of ways. Not cheap eats but dependable and always good. A touch of elegance along the malecon beach.
