“Good location but disappointing ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

Just finished having dinner there and although the restaurant is nice and on the beach we were very disappointed with everything else. Reading prior reviews we agree with a couple other points that came up often. This included a grilled fish that wasn't gutted, bland food that felt lazy, and staff that resented that we were there. Overall quality over price was sub par and I would recommend somewhere else. Very disappointing...

“Vile! Didn't gut our fish!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

Rude service, food below average, shocked that we paid for a fish by weight and they didn't even gut it! Nice setting but I would avoid this money pit, far nicer restaurants for less than half the price and 100 times better service. Avoid, avoid, avoid!
