“An Amazing find....”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We stumbled across this gem whilst looking for restrooms and ended up sitting at the bar ordering a cocktail. It was the best Pina Colado I have ever had - and Ive had a lot! The bar had a great feel and the staff were so nice that we deiced to stay for some food.
It is a great setting overlooking the harbour yet peaceful at the same time. We ordered cocnut shrimp and could not fault them - they were delicious. In fact the whole experience was so good we asked them for a crad so we could put a review on Trip Advisor for them - which they were dleighted about.
Its hard to find - located behind the petrol station but 100% worthwhile to seek it out. You definately wont be disappointed

“You HAVE to go there at sunset!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I have yet to try the food but I don't know if there is a better chill place to watch the sun go down in the evening. The staff is also very friendly. Grab some friends, or a loved one, and head there ready to watch the sun go down and the sky portray its red orange and blue grandness after sunset. You are welcome. :-)
Women might enjoy the beautiful local jewelry vendors.

“The best fish tacos!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I had delicious fish tacos in Bally Hoo which is a palapa restaurant over the water in Playa Norte, not far from the ferry.
Service was great and very friendly.
The tacos came with 3 sauces, dulce (not spicy), habanero (very spicy) and tamarindo (sweet-sour). Delicious!!

Definitely worth the visit as it was also really cheap!

“great place to relax”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great margaritas and fish tacos. Very relaxing sitting over the water next to the pier. Great place located almost next door to the ferry if you need to kill time.
