We just had lunch at Tonita I. We went because we so enjoyed the margaritas last year. We were not disappointed. Great drinks and superb food and it is on the beach with a great view. We will be back😊

Loved having dinner on the beach with such tasty food. I had the pistachio encrusted stuffed fish and my husband a shrimp dish. The presentation was beautiful and the portions huge. Attentive and professional wait staff. Best margarita of the entire trip.

Do I need a reservation for 12 people on Sunday evening and if so how do I go about it? Also is it to the north or south of Torreblanca Hotel?

Yes you need a reservation for that many people - they dont take reservations after 6 30pm - it is to the right of Torre Blanca - looking at the ocean - we usually walk down there and reserve but you can also phone them....
