Went here because it looked ok. Waitress was too busy with her boyfriend to serve customers. Food was bad and overpriced. Steak was thin and watery. Ceviche made us feel ill. Plantain chips were oily. Feels like a dive bar. Walk past this one.

Good prices, good ceviche, hard to communicate both times we were there. They did not understand gluten free and found out the hard way that grilled fish is likely coated with flour. Full bar and frequented by locals.

The food is good but the service slow and two out of three visits they forgot one in our party of four... It took adfitional 40-60 min for that person to get her/his food. That is especially undesirable when that person is 7y.

Pleasant wait staff, good portions of typical Central American food. There is plenty of room for a couple or a whole group to dine and enjoy the open space.

Good place for a cheap lunch, but expect pretty unenthusiastic service... We tried the Chicken Casado, and the chicken rice - both dishes were pretty tasty and they serve quite large portions.

The shrimp stuffed fish was AMAZING!!! They also make their drinks quite strong. I had two Margaritas (which are made from scratch, not a mix) and I was done for the night! It's also a really unique little place. I was temped to go back,...More

One of the few liquor bars in quiet drakes bay. This place is filled with locals and tourist alike cooling off with some rum or other libation. This shady spot has 3 TVs making it a great spot for catching the game.

Cold beer, great food, and easy access to the beach. Chicken nachos, fries, and quesadilla were all fantastic.
