We enjoyed several delicious meals at El Picante and shared many conversations with Jean, the owner. He will make you feel very welcome. The view from above overlooking the bay makes a beautiful setting for enjoying juicy roasted chicken, quesadillas, or a beautiful flower arrangement of nachos, the 3 items I ordered at El Picantes, all very good.

Loved the food at this place.... The atmosphere was very comfortable, we were there a little early in the evening, the crowd was picking up as we were leaving. My new 2nd favorite drink is the 800 pound Gorilla!

This place was right on the water on the second level of the big yellow house, which is easy to spot during the daylight. Big portions and tasty food. The drinks are huge. The smoothies were very refreshing.
