Four of us came here for dinner one night. Upon arrival, we ordered a few local beers and they brought out some complimentary sardines. We ordered ceviche de camarones (shrimp), paella, lobster a la plancha (grilled lobster), and Plato mixto carne y camarones (meat and shrimp). All of the items were delicious but the lobster was the best!! Huge portion for about $25. Most of the restaurant has outside seating and we sat upstairs with a view of the bustling street below. Just a warning for those that don't speak Spanish, the menu was all in Spanish (no English). They have a BIG menu ranging from seafood to pizza to Spanish food. Our total bill was $89 for 4 entrees and 3 beers and a glass of rum. Overall a fun place, good prices, and great food!

Excelent place, a must when visiting El Salvador. It has several locations being the best the one near the beach. You can enjoy a beautiful view while having a great meal.

If you spend any time in El Salvador don't miss this spot in Costa Del Sol. This is as much a resort as it is a restaurant and customers are encouraged to spend the day. For the price of your meal you are welcome to enjoy their beautiful oasis so plan on arriving early and staying the day. Good seafood and service will keep your hunger at bay and the beach will replenish the sole. They have changing rooms, and showers at no additional charge to insure your comfort. The water is warm this time of year and the waves are manageable at this beach. It's about 1:40min out of town but worth the trip. Bring some friends and a towel. You won't be disappointed!

Menu was extensive, with lots of options. Glad to see a mix of local and international options. A little bit of everything, cannot go wrong. Pricing is pretty good, and with a small group, the service was as well. Everything seemed extremely fresh, and came out decently fast.

This is an open air restaurant in El Escalon near the Hotel Princess. We only had 45 minutes so we limited ourselves to shrimp cocktails, ceviche, and shrimp salads--all of which were excellent. Definitely a great place to go for casual dining on shell fish.
