If you are looking for a relaxing afternoon eating seafood and drinking a margarita, this is the place! Just in front of the beach you will enjoy the sand on your feet while you eat. Only cash- they should accept credit cards. Wait until the end. They will give you a little surprise. The Aguachile is the best if you... More

Stopped in here for a few drinks . Although on the beach the prices were very reasonable. Only downside is the proximity to the market when you leave.

Great food, tried the ranchero shrimp and garlic shrimp. Both were good but I loved the ranchero shrimp best. My husband had the steak and said it was amazing!

Such a fun place. Could have sat there all day! Had the shrimp salad. Amazing!!!! Love the man who plays guitar there. He was rocking out to Pink Floyd! Only down side is the annoying vendors. Much like flies at a picnic.
