Staying at Tulmar villas and walked to Agua Azul for dinner. Very friendly staff and good vibe. Open air kitchen. Local feel and menu. Food was delicious, had the seafood stew and the fried chicken -- both delicious! We were full, but still managed to eat the whole thing and get bread pudding for dessert. Best place we have eaten...

Like the fish specialties, come fresh and well prepared. Nice place for lunch with a view with a reasonable cost

Loved this place. It was open air, laid back, and fun, and the food was superb. It was night, so we could not see the view, but the atmosphere was great. We had to wait about 20 minutes, but the hostess took an order of margaritas. The seafood was great.

Great place with incredible view! I had shrimp ceasar salad and it was excellent. My son had the 1/2 buger and he raved about it!

This was our first dinner out in the area- we were pleased with the variety on the menu, the service was good and the view was beautiful. We ordered way too much- portions were generous! The atmosphere is pretty relaxed and felt very "local"

The best part of this restaurant is the view. It is beautiful. The food is good too, mostly U.S. fair with a slightly Latin take. Go early for dinner to enjoy the view.

The food here is great but very pricey. We had the tuna margarita (ceviche), plantain tower, sea bass, and mahi mahi. They did make the best caiparinha I've ever had. The service was good.

We went here twice for lunch & had great meals both times. The views are just amazing as soon as you reach the top step. We heard dinners are excellent, but didn't have the time to give them a try. The lunch menu was typical American fare...burgers, wraps, salads, all very good. Good & friendly service too. We'd definitely go... More
