“Pleasant meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

We joined a couple of new 'friends' for a casual dinner and it was a pleasant evening. I had the fillet which was nice, but I did notice that the chicken was served on exactly the same vegetables which was not on the menu. Could have been a disaster, as they only told us at the end of the evening that we had to pay cash! We managed to scamble together enough cash to pay the bill but otherwise could have been very embarassing! Perhaps letting us know at the beginning of the dinner would have been more responsible?

“Very good dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

We walked here from our hotel along the beach. It had a great view of the sunset and service was great. My husband had the yellow fin tuna and I had the fillet. Make sure to take cash, because they do not take credit card.

“A must do while in Raro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

This was one of the better restaurants I ate at while in Raro & I would definitely recommend it.

Service is good and the place is really cool and right on the beach. It is a really cute and quaint place. Food is really nice we both had the steak and cheesecake for dessert. You won't be disappointed!
