Great food! Love the homemade flour tortillas with the spicy dipping sauces, instead of bread with your dinners! I ordered the chicken salad with walnuts and apples- very tasty. My husband had the fish and chips- he was a little disappointed...small pieces of fish.

The food is always good and the Coconut Mojito to die for! It is pretty popular so I recommend going off hours if you want to just walk in. The view is beautiful so come before the sun sets.

Causal or smart causal. I like to dress up on vacation and did not feel uncomfortable doing so here, but likewise casual would have worked. I would suggest not beach wear!
