Friends came here yesterday and raved about it, so had to check it out. And wasn’t disappointed! The Bloody Mary bar is so good- and fun. Tacos are amazing too. Highly recommend the 3 mile bike ride from town - open Friday-Sunday .

This guys know how to make tacos! A very relaxed atmosphere and a good spot to have a little break of surfing.. Alli and David are such nice guys and we really enjoyed to stay here! Sometimes you can mix your own Bloody Mary:)!
