How difficult is it to tell TripAdvisor that you are closed for the off season. We walked for 2ks in the rain to dine with you assured by TripAdvisor that you were open. Service is 24/7 12 months of the year open or closed.

We arrived at Franca really late for lunch (14.30/15h) and the restaurant which is not on the beach was empty. We asked whether we could have something to eat and were told, that though the kitchen was ‚closed‘, they could prepare us a fish or...More

Good food, not great. Prices on the higher end. It’s a good option given what Punta del Diablo has to offer but don’t expect “5 forks” cuisine.

By far the best place to eat at in Punta del Diablo, the panqueque could use a bit more dulce de leche though

Lets focus on the food here.. i was the only guest when i visited this place. The chef had to worry about cooking to one person (me), and still he did a horribly. No seasoning, burned potatos.. bad service, overpriced.. yup, deserves minimum rating.

I had a great time there, the service was outstanding and so was the food! I recommend everyone who's around the area to stop by and try it, trust me, you won't be disappointed. I'm not usually one to leave reviews but i was amazed!

This is by far the best food experience I had in Rocha. The standard is just amazing. The team is very knowledgeable and friendly. If you want a good culinary experience, definitely try this place.
