Had Pizza one time and was so yummy. Also had some chicken wraps, amazing. Along with the cans of Medella beer. Makes a good combination. Staff are super friendly and... More

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

This is the only convenient waterfront restaurant on gorgeous Isla Verde beach. It has nice shaded (or not) tables on a patio or in the sand and is very comfortable.. We ate there several times and found the food and service good. We enjoyed lamb and halibut wraps, burgers, and salads. The only disappointment were the nachos.

Ordered some tropical drinks and some food while on the beach. Drinks were good, service could have been friendlier, food ok, and scenery was the best.

While the setting is spectacular, the food is mediocre at best and expensive. The staff is friendly but service was slow.

Really disappointed by this convenience place right on the beach, with its overpriced and ordinary menu items (eg fish 'tenders' which looked like frozen fish triangles you'd buy at your grocery store in the freezer section, 'jumbo' hot dogs, etc.) which approach $20 per entree. The stereotypical establishment for a captive audience. And by the way, even though the place... More

Stopped here for lunch a couple of weeks ago. It is right on the beach, so a lovely setting to sit and relax whilst eating. Our waitress was really friendly, attentive and helpful. We ordered our drinks (wine and beer) which came immediately and then chose our food - my partner going for the quesedillas and I opted for a... More
