Ate and drank, more than a few times,and never disappointed. Prices, very reasonable especially when on the ocean. One of the few places you can get a dark tea in morning. Give them a try....

We often stop here on our trips from Puerto Vallarta to Guayabitos. It has great food and the service is good. It is really hard to find a great salad in Mexico but Karen has them plus my husband loves the wraps.
