“Lunch with the ladies”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful lunch here. The food was delicious and the drinks were great! The view of the ocean was amazing. However, for the dishes they served it was expensive. If you don't mind handing over the cash and your not on a budget this is a must go place. We had burgers, arugula salad, wraps, crab cakes all very good. Just make sure your okay with dropping 60$ a person if you have at least two drinks.

Great little hidden gem! Food was delicious and service great. Better hope you get a seat near the water, it's beautiful!

“Must have been an off night.”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

It came here with a group of 10 friends. Was a beautiful location but the food was subpar. The waitress was really friendly. The mofongo arrived with no sauce.... Very dry. The salad arrived without any salad dressing. I really wanted to like this restaurant but I didn't.

“Not worth the price ”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Great location with a beautiful view. I recommend the coco loso drink. The staff is friendly and attentive and the live music gives it a great vibe. BUT do not get the surf and turf, I REPEAT do not get the surf and turf. You're better off getting a bacon egg and cheese at the local bodega. Steak was cold and the chimichurri sauce was more like chimiOIL sauce. The mofongo was OKAY. Not worth the money though. I recommend to have a couple of drinks but not for dinner

“My favorite restaurant!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

What a pleasant surprise this place was. The dining by the ocean was a perfect setting for a family beach dinner. Everyone had excellent dishes. My son has gluten allergies. They were very accommodating fixing him grilled chicken and chopped bananas. My Mahi Mahi with mango sauce and fried plantains was out of this world. The coconut shrimp, surf n turf, and salads were also excellent. Our service was great.
