Stopped for some Margaritas and decided to eat. Had Caesar Salad and Salmon Filet. Both were very large portions.

This is a nice beachside, outdoor restaurant nestled under the palm trees and sits right on the beach in front of the Intercontinental Hotel. One can enter directly from the beach or through the hotel. The menu is modest, but everything we had to eat was very good. Three of us had the shrimp on skewers, and we all enjoyed... More

When I go to the beach, I hate bringing stuff like chairs, coolers, drinks, umbrellas, etc etc.... Having said that, when I go to the beach this is the place to eat. It is Located at Isla Verde beach on the Intercontinental Hotel. They have Good variety of drinks, beers and beverages. The food is good. Hamburger, pizza, fish, sandwiches,... More

Stop here, get a drink there are drink specials and lots of bar food too. You can get chairs and an umbrella for the beach as well. Waiters Jesus and Julio are very attentive.

Considering it is part of the Intercontinental the prices are reasonable. The drink specials are equally so but a fantastic frozen mojito will set you back $10. The $10 pizza is decent albeit overlooked. The chicken quesadilla is awesome and the nachos supreme excellent. Excellent choice of staying at the hotel.

Just so happens to be right on the beach near our hotel that we stayed at. We visited here nearly every night of our stay. They have very good drinks and the staff is very friendly. We decided to eat here on our last night and they have a brick oven so we thought we would try the pizza. It... More

We walked down to this cafe and it was nice place. Bartenders very friendly and helped us pick out a lunch spot! Try the Bungee Jumping drink. They also serve food here.

Good sandwiches, salads and hummus. Drinks are resort pricey, roughly $10 for a hand crafted mojito or a shot of Stoli. A great option for sheltering from rain and thunderstorms when swimming either in the resort or the beach. Lots of umbrellas and canopy coverage. This restaurant I think oftentimes is confused with the Splash Bar which is located further... More
