Wonderful seafood, a great view of Chitre and beyond and very attentive service. What more is there? We greatly enjoyed our lunch and got to experience plenty of locals enjoying a very unique location. We know why this place is so popular with the locals: Good food, GREAT service and good value.

The shrimp and mixed seafood in red sauce were great! The mixed seafood plate was especially generous. $1 beers topped it off. Really nice view. Good value for good seafood.

It is partly an outdoor restaurant on a hill just outside Chitre center, with a good view of the Chitre and and surrounding area. The service is good and the restaurant serve excellent seafood

This was our 4th time at this location but the 1st time it was actually open. It has become our new discovery to replace Los Alacranes (our former favorite that has decayed). The location shown on the map is TOTALLY inaccurate! the actual location is to the West. You go on the Circunvalacion de Chitre direction to La Arena and... More

This is one of the best viewpoints in Chitré. Local food, good service, friendly atmosphere. Wife had the seafood soup...more like a stew, but it was delicious! I had the fried Covina, also delicious. In all the times we have eaten here I have never had a bad plate of food. Not a fancy restaurant, but who cares. The prices... More

A car or taxi is required to get here but the view alone is worth it. Great food with a limited menu. That alright as they are good at what they do.

When I stopped by I was very hot, I had been walking around for a while and needed a pit stop. Just walked in and enjoyed the atmosphere and a drink. I admired the décor and the service provided.

After much deliberation I went with the pescado entero: an entire fish on your plate with fries and an orange slice. Fish was great. Fries were OK. My wife had the fried platanos on her plate and those were better than my fries for sure. The standout here, though, above the food, is the view. It's just a cool atmosphere... More
