I have been a customer for over 15 years, always returning due to the views and thinking one day they will get it right. I have grown gray hair..waiting. Poor quality of food at high prices. The only thing worth something here is a cold Heineken and the views. Period.

The wife and I have returned for casual dining during lunch and dinner. Lunch... More

This restaurant is in Parador Villas del Mar Hau. We paid $5/day to use the private beach at the Villas, and the restaurant there is perfect to grab some lunch. Their drinks were good and we liked our food too. Beautiful views!
