Normal bar and average food. Go here for the fire dancers and the views. There are much better places to eat and drink on the beach but it isn't bad. It's just normal.

All of the restaurants along the beach look inviting but this one was recommended to us so we headed their for lunch one day. Cold drinks, taco salad, fish tacos, nice view from semi-shady outdoor table.

Awesome place to take in dinner on the beach at sunset. Staff were very attentive and service was quick. View of the sunset from here is worth a stop and the music and after dark entertainment a fun activity for all ages.
