The food is good, and the specialty tequila is excellent. You can have coffee here early in the morning as well.

Regardless...the food was very good, the service was good. They had a bunch of original cocktails that were awesome! I don't remember the name... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner celebration with a large group. Dinner was served buffet style and delicious. This was followed by a special lava cake for desert. Yummy!

We had been there twice before the day of the anniversary. First just for a coffee, but then the day after for dinner, because the staff was friendly and helpful, and we liked the restaurant being right on the beach and having style.
