“Nice Little Spot”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

My wife and I had lunch here on our final day in Todos Santos and really liked it. I had fish tacos. When they came out there was a tortilla and grilled fish...no extras. In just a few seconds the waiter brought out a large tray with slaw, pico de gallo, and red/green chilis to dress up the taco. It was very good. My wife had the special which was jumbo shrimp with passion fruit. She said it was the best shrimp dish she ever had. The mango margarita was solid.

“Almost as good as always”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Just eating lunch here now. Shame the Boss is away cause they are serving jarred Sakai (Pace) and bagged corn chips!

Always good. Just not perfect.

“Delicious fish, reasonably priced”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We enjoyed our mahi mahi in basil butter sauce very much. Unlike many restaurants in Todos Santos, which are over-priced IMO, the price was quite reasonable. The service (a young man) was very pleasant. It's a small, very casual place, with a couple of outdoor tables on the main street. Menu is limited, but definitely worth a visit for fresh, tasty fish.

“Slow & Rude”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

The service here was both slow and rude. It took over an hour to get our meal (for only 2 people) and the staff never checked on us once. The waitress didn't even speak when she took our order, just starred with a mean look on her face. Food was decent but nothing special. Had to chase down the waitress again to pay. Maybe it's better at lunch or for a snack, but would NOT recommend for dinner.

“Fresh seafood, great margaritas!”
Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

Overall, this restaurant is well-priced for fresh, creative seafood spot with a great romantic ambiance.

The daily specials (we had ahi tuna marinated in soy and sesame served with fresh papaya and cilantro) was well priced and really, really delicious - almost a fusion feel. It was served with rice and salad, which were both light, fresh and balanced the fish very well.

The ambiance is quaint but still feels upscale. The entire restaurant is built against one of the historic brick buildings. It's entirely open concept so the evening breeze is quite nice when you eat.

Highly recommend!
