This restaurant is hidden from the street but worth the time to explore and find it,
We went with a party of 8 people and all of us ordered different types of shrimp. Every person loved their order. Not one complaint. You sit outside, nothing special as far at atmosphere, but the food was excellent. Very reasonable on price as well. You will save money if you pay with the local currency rather than US dollars. I had the tequila shrimp and my husband had the devils shrimp, both were excellent. If were not staying at an all inclusive hotel we would have gone there more than once.

The food was OK...not great. We went there because we were told it was owned by Deborah. Deborah has an interest n the place, but does not run it. The food at Deborah's was much better, so this place turned out to be "just another restaurant".

My shrimp was delicious but my husband's tamale was not very good. I'd stick to the seafood.

Nothing to rave about. Slow service, uncomfortably hot with the open flame sautéed shrimp stations at various tables. The drinks are 2x1, but the second drink came only after asking several times-- and after dinner was eaten. The fish was served with head, tail, bones. Not bad, but was a surprise. Uninspired sides (standard baby carrots are the "seasonal vegetables".

The lobster had only about 2 bites.
