I ordered the Tempura onion salad for $11.65. It was the outside of a medium sized onion fried with raw onions and tomatoes inside, and included 2 very small pieces of Gouda wrapped in prosciutto. Definitely overpriced and not enough for a meal!! Drinks were delicious and I tasted someone else's tuna salad which was great.

Amazing location - right on Sandy Beach. I am sure this location guarantees a steady flow of patrons which means they can get by with uninspired service and food while overcharging. $10 for kids buttered noodles? $12 for a fish sandwich?....sure if it's fresh food made by someone who knows and cares about what they're doing. Thus place is not that. They're coasting and it's not enjoyable to witness. This place has the location that could bring up the profile of the whole neighborhood. Sadly they're missing this opportunity.

We were a party of four (husband, daughter (18), friend (17) and myself). We went for the sunset and sat on the deck (terrace). Beautiful view of the sunset behind the big boulder wall. It is set on Sandy beach, which a nice one (not so rocky) to sit on (chairs are nice if you can bring them). A few late night, local surfers surfed the night set.

We had some awesome Mojito's (drinking age is 18, so daughter liked them too). The food was also very good. We had ribs (x2), grilled chicken sandwich, and grouper. Our favorite was the calamari (appetizer) - way better than we had at Shipwrecked the night before. All together our tab was about $120.00.

Our waitress was not the best, but the view (setting) and food made up for it.

We would go again.

I love the vibe here and love the views from the deck, especially awesome since they added the second level. This place is always a must-go when I come to Rincon. I haven't had their food so I can't say anything about that but the mojitos are the best you will ever have. Period. Fun, chill atmosphere during the day and party vibe at night - best of both worlds! Bartenders are always nice and talkative as well.

We ate dinner here in late February, the setting is beautiful since the restaurant is on the beach with a view of the ocean. The food and service were also very good. We had a party of 10 everyone ordered something different and they all enjoyed their meal. The service for the 10 people was also friendly and efficient. Would definitely go there again.
