Ordered a plate of enchiladas and a plate of fajitas. Generous helpings, but the food wasn't warm, let alone hot. Somewhat bland. Pricier than one should be paying in Bucerias. Cash only. That said, eating on the beach was fun.

4 of us enjoyed a beautiful sunset supper there! The octopus was amazing and the tacos are TO DIE FOR! Our server was funny and made our time spent so fun! If you're in Bucerias you have to stop there!
