They have an outside siting area with a nice view. The seafood is fresh and very good. Is a very informal place to go and enjoy.

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

The food and staff at this restaurant were top of the line. The views of the ocean are amazing. And if you go a little down the road you can actually walk across a sandbar to one of the small islands nearby. The people of Salinas are friendly and very generous. Had a great time.

This is one of the best restaurants of the area. The food and the service is excellent. The environment is family oriented, they have a good wine selection and excellent seafood courses. The view is breathtaking, I absolutely recommend this restaurant.

I really liked the open terrance and the view of the Caribean Sea!. So easy to get there. The waitresses were very kind, and helpful. The foot was good. Huge turnovers ( conchfish was a little ruberry). Lobster was a little overdone. Fishes looked fresh, tender and moist. Seafood salad was good. Calamari rings were tender, breaded fish was excellent.... More
