We visited the last week of June, 2012 and they told us they had only been open 10 days. They handled a party of 15 as if they were doing if for years. The salsa was unbelievable! The food was light fresh and delicious!!

Our daughter's rehearsal dinner was here last week and they took great care of our party. The catering facility is across from the restaurant - separate. The food was good, the bartender was GREAT! They replenished food and cleared plates to keep the party rolling.

We were in Corolla in late November so many of the area restaurants had closed for the season. Fortunately for us, this restaurant was still open. As many times as we've been to Corolla, we've never really noticed this restaurant, which is situated in a...More
