“What a great way to spend a day at the beach”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Really great food not what you would expect coming out of a revamped school bus. Everything was wonderful from the coconut shrimp to the nachos were even fabulous. Drinks were super yummy too!!!! Staff was very friendly and helpful we really enjoyed our day at the beach and all of the food we had at Karakter

“A great find at the end of a sandy road”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Very pleasant service, lovely location - right on the beach - and very good food, including vegetarian options. Bathroom is a shared beach front stall - not optimal but okay.
