“You know its good when the locals eat here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

My family and I had a late lunch at this restaurant. We were seated next to 3 U.S ex-pats who live in the area and regularly dine here. We dined on avocado and shrimp salad, which had plenty of both. We also split a flank steak with fresh tortillas, gucamole, pico de gallo, rice and beans. Everything was delicious and the portions were good.

The cerveza was ice cold! The service was good. Overall a great meal, in a quaint town.

“Great find for lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local, Jill Logan of Galeria Logan. She knew what she was talking about. They had daily lunch specials that included fresh fish, a salad, and a drink for 100 pesos. The grilled yellowtail was fantastic. The rest of us had tacos, shrimp, fish, and pork, and all were excellent. This was the best, freshest Mexican lunch that we had during our stay in Baja.

“Best wifi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

A great little cafe/bar with superb wifi. Snacks were pretty reasonable as well. Cold beers and a cheerful service, all in all, not a bad spot.

“Mixed Review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

We went for dinner and sat outside so we could watch people on the main drag. Service was slow, but very friendly. I had one of the specials, which was yellow tail carpaccio. It was amazing. The chocolate mousse I had for dessert is also worth mentioning, although it was more like a pudding than a mousse. Unfortunately, my husband's lobster was overcooked. Also, I am almost certain neither my daiquiri or my husband's margarita had any alcohol in them. Tip: do not eat outside if you order seafood at this place, as the flies will overwhelm you. I wanted to ask to be reseated inside, but I did not want to cause a stir.

“Local Charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Small, charming restaurant with fresh fish and shell fish prepared simply with only fresh ingredients. Scallops cooked perfectly: seared and not over cooked! Fish and shrimp combo served with a delicate brown butter and garlic sauce. Lobster was caught that day and the best we have had on our trip. All entrees served with organic greens and rice. The cocktails were made with fresh ingredients. One of the best meals we have had. Make the drive to Todos Santos, enjoy the shopping and make sure you stop for lunch here!
