Great Food
Great Atmosphere
Great Beach
GREAT EXPERIENCE!!

If you have the chance please try out this place wont be disappointed.

I had the house Margarita it was not sweet at all, very refreshing, other had the strawberry margarita, sangria and of course cervesas.
The bathroom should be at the top of best bathrooms - it is outdoor, but there is a board you put down to show that it is occupied.

We were a party of 6 had 5 appetizers, 2 order of lobster, 2 orders of octopus and 2 orders or red snapper and of course dessert (Key Lime pie, cheese cake) - $300 for the group.

Make sure and make your reservations a head of time - then relax and enjoy

5/1/13 rez. Knowing this destination restaurant had limited seating, we promptly met our quick water-taxi ride for the most unique dining setting you can imagine. Greeted on a hidden jewel of a beach by 'Wilson' and personally attended by owner Alfonzo, our group of 6 was blown away by the food, warm hospitality and bano (toilet - not to be missed). While the delightful waterside cabana cannot accommodate people with physical challenges (and I personally would not recommend for children) it is at the top of our list of 'all-time-best experiences EVER'!!! Stick to downtown P.V. if you're into loud bars & chicken Mcnuggets. If Jimmy Buffet were in town - this is where he'd eat! Our group of 6 tried most of the menu and found it out of sight ~ Beautiful presentation. The addition (under construction) will be awesome & allow more seating. Wear swimsuits w/cover. Take adventurous spirit, pesos (no credit cards) and sunscreen. Make advance rez ~ Promptness is appreciated and anything else is just plain rude. We will not miss O.G. when we're in P.V. Thank You Alfonzo! P.S. Tried to download pic of 'Wilson' but Mac is moving too slow. Peeps just have to come and see him for themselves! ;~)

I'm a regular visitor to Vallarta. Dining on a deck above the surf crashing on rocks in a semi- isolated location is hard to beat. Part of the adventure is getting there via boat launch from Boca de Tomatlan (fun). The grilled food and service were fine. "Solo effectivo" for payment. The drink options and bathroom are what cause me to give it only a 3 star rating. The margaritas were sugar bombs, north of the border style. The meager wine selections available were unpalatable - one red and one white - the white some unheard of sweet blend. (Not a cold copa de chardonnay to be had.) No problem, order a diet Coke, right? But I was served old diet Pepsi from a half full two liter bottle that had lost its fizz. The bathroom (only one) is up the path, open air with no privacy. Embarrassing moments for all who accidently encounter each other there "au naturale." There needs to be at least a rudimentary door and a functioning "occupied" sign. We will give this restaurant another try due to spectacular locale, good grilled food and friendly staff, but still some rough edges to be worked out.

What a lark! We went with a couple of friends and had a great time. Had Shrimp Aquachiles (yum), octopus, marlin tostadas and house margaritas. All were delicious. Great adventure. Alfonso cooked since his chef didn't show so it was extra special! Only open 1 yr and 3 months and he's already #1 on TA for 10 months in a row. He's doing so well that he's expanding. Don't miss it but you must have reservations and cash!!
