We ate breakfast and dinner here. The Huevos Rancheros were very good, with fresh salsa and homemade corn shells. The eggs really needed seasoned more but the bacon was perfectly cooked. I recommend the Lumpia rolls as a must! The shrimp tacos were good but I would have rather had them on a corn shell instead of a flour shell.... More

If you want local flavor this is a good spot for breakfast or lunch across A-1-A from the beach. There's limited parking and some outside tables but the prices are reasonable and food quality consistent.

Unless things change we will not be back. There for breakfast. My breakfast Tacos were cold... not cool... but the eggs were cold. My friend ordered scrambles eggs with veggies and got an overcooked omelette. She asked for them to redo it. They took the omelette and cut it up, put it back on the grill to cook it even... More

We visited this spot on a sunny Wednesday at lunch time after hearing it was one of the best spots for a casual meal on the beach. The atmosphere was picnic table style, airy and bright. There was only one other couple dining when we arrived.The server promptly informed us that they had no power but cooked with gas so... More

Small place tucked in, but everyone there is friendly and a place lots of locals go. The place is small and has a funk to it but that's part of why we love it so. Great happy hour draws.

Great place to get pancit and mimosas. We sat outside and it was a lovely day to listen to the beach waves.

This may be a somewhat bias review because since stumbling upon this place searching the island for some great Mornorcan chowder I have returned here every Tuesday (and some times more) with a group of friends for happy hour. It's been almost two years now, and the chowder is STILL the best around (and they have a "best of" trophy... More
