After reading such stellar reviews I was pretty excited to come here. My paella was awesome, my husband ordered red snapper which tasted like the literally caught the fish, floured it and fried it....no seasoning what so ever, not even salt. I am timid of dogs and didn't like the fact that while sitting on the deck eating, other customers could bring their dog, big or small to dine with them. Food doesn't warrant such expensive prices.

walked from the ritz and it was an easy and enjoyable walk through a couple side streets. located in a cute little boutique hotel right on a pier.
very low key and relaxing ambiance but perfect for a night away from the $15 drinks and $29 typical items at the ritz. great view right on the tip of a small jetty with a comfortable breeze. yes the service or i should say food arrival was not speedy but super helpful and enjoyable staff who checked in every ten minutes. fantastic and very large salads (split them esp the arugula) and the ceviche was also quite good with a huge portion compared to most places. their risotto of the night was phenomenal (mushroom and bacon) and my paella was quite good although it definitely needed a little more seafood for the amount of tasty rice. drinks were large and strong and i would recommend someone trying the coconut drink (like a pina colada but with a little different taste and very good, strong and large).

overall very happy we left the ritz and walked around the corner for a fun, different and tasty view and meal. and generally we are pretty picky and heavily research any restaurant we go to.

Very slow service...excruciating. But very nice view and great breeze. Had 2 for $5 medalla beers and the calamari app. Other tables had food that looked good and authentic. Free coconut drink with yelp check in.

My husband and I went here for dinner, easy walk from Courtyard by Marriott right on Isla Verde beach. The views were stunning and just wish we had planned it better to watch the sunset. The food was good, nothing overly exciting, it's definitely a place to go to grab a small bite and enjoy some drinks right on the ocean.

Excellent food, staff was courteous. The only think that I would suggest, bring or use some type of bug spray, other than them annoying mosquitoes or bugs, the food was delicious.
