Had a 1.5 hour drive to see this beautiful spot, this restaurant has a great view, service was quick and food was great, owner was very kind. The menu is dated and offers a variety of seafood. Clean bathrooms available and parking just a few steps.

The food is excellent, wonderful view. The seafood salad is amazing. Great service. Its have inside or outside sitting. All the food was good, but I don't like the coffee, it can improve. A great alternative in Salinas

We were the only ones in the restaurant and it took about 25 minutes for our appetizers to come out and another 20 minutes for the food. The corn fritters were the best appetizer. The shrimp cocktail although good is only 3 shrimp. Tres Lethe cake is awesome for dessert but the size of a cup cake so only enough... More

The place has easy access, its very clean, have a big selection of sea food, the waitress are very cordial. The prices are above average. The food is tasty and fresh. The waiting for the food and drinks is unusually long. Be ready to wait more than one hour to get your food. This restaurant is definitely under staffed. This... More

Food is great, service was a little slow when we visited, but it was worth it. They have an outdoor terrace with great view. The indoor area has AC. We opted for the AC as it was very hot outside. It ended up raining a later on, and the wind/breeze blew the rain into the terraced area.

This is a typical restaurant next to the Caribbean Sea. Since today is my wife's birthday, I took her there for lunch. The restaurant is divided into three sections, outdoor balcony, main dinning area with air conditioning and a smaller dinning area next to the bar. We started with a conch cocktail while enjoying the air conditioning. We enjoyed our... More
