Newly Renovated, Same Menu and prices, these people get it right , I have been there over a hundred times, (not kidding) food is incredible, large menu, great drinks, The wait staff is the best, seafood salad and cadillac margaritas are yummy. Must go to this restaurant, you will find your all inclusive bland after that.

It is also worth noting that Gabriel who works... More

The shrimp in white wine sauce was beyond good.... as was everything we ordered. Skipped desert, too full. The singer/performer was so much fun. Really a great evening

We recently ate here and loved that it was right on the beach 🌊 eat in the sand or in the restaurant. Delicious food and nice staff.
