This bar/restaurant was opened a few years ago to much fanfare as the only gay restaurant on the Malecon. Unfortunately for the gay population, it has become so successful that except for some of the staff, there’s nary a gay to be found. (Leave it to the straights to ruin a perfectly good gay bar)
The food and drink prices are unbelievably low, with one dollar margaritas and beers, and really cheap bar food. Often during the day, you have to wait a considerable time for a table especially when the cruise ships are in port.
Great views, good food and drink, terrific prices; what’s not to love?

They have a great lasagna special on Friday's. Huge portion at very reasonable price. Great food, but don't buy the drink specials. I doubt there is much if any liquor in them.

This is a good place to meet your friends... go with your Spanish class to celebrate end of the week (why I went). Big place with a very casual vibe. Nice view. Cheap beer and drinks. Food other than salsa and chips I didn't try the food but from others plates looked like the usual Mexican bar for tourist food. Good size portions. I agree with the other reviews. Nice stop on a hot day. This place can accommodate large tables full of people. Not crowded on lazy afternoons.

This place is so much fun. Margaritas for 1$? Attentive waiters, yummy food,. Great place for people watching as they stroll along the malecon. See you there.

We had dinner here on a trip downtown from the marina district. The appetizers were great; the meal, not so much. Won't try it again.
