“2 hours of wait...”

This is a review uniquely for the restaurant part of Mama Ines. We went there with my wife once during our stay in Santa Catalina, and we regret it. The service was awful. Truly bad. When we entered the restaurant part, the waiter saw us and just left. We waited 5 minutes for him to come back before deciding to grab a menu for ourselves. Fifteen minutes later, he showed up to take our orders. It took them 1 more hour to bring my food... Yes, 'my' food, as my wife had to wait for 30 more minutes!!! All of that without apologies. And the restaurant wasn't even full! The food itself was decent, but definitely not worth the poor service, nor the wait (or price!). Maybe they are offering a better service to people that are actually staying with them though...

We stopped by to eat dinner here. After ordering beer and sitting for a very long time, my husband finally got up to get menus. There were other people at the tables that were equally puzzled why there was no one offering to take our orders. After quite a while, we just paid for our beers and left.

Arrived for lunch at 2.15 sign said kitchen closes at 3. Waited 15 minutes before a man (I assume the owner) appeared. We tried to order and he shouted in our faces that the kitchen was closed and generally behaved like an aggressive little man. I understand there can sometimes be a language barrier however this was nothing but aggression. We were essentially marched out as other diners looked on in amazement. Given the lack of competition in the area the owner clearly thinks he can behave in any way he wishes.

Really strange experience. When i attempted to order the Fish Tacos i had a finger waved in my face by the extremely grumpy waiter and told NO FISH only CHICKEN. So i ordered 2 chicken tacos..... what i recieved was bascially 2 lettuce tacos with a small piece of strange tasting chicken inside ($8 for 2 small lettuce taccos!). This place obviously does business based on its location overlooking the beach. The outright rude service was not something only i experienced, but 3 other couples we spoke to during our stay had similar experiences. Much better options around such as Jammin, Los Pibes and the breakfast options in the town.

The atmosphere was wonderful. Fish was over cooked. The view from the deck is right on the beach. The beer was cold, the service was very slow.
