Awesome place to hang out, great drinks, tasty international cuisine, right in front of the beautiful blue ocean of Samara which makes the atmosphere very cool and refreshing from the hot streets up the road to the hotels and rentals. You feel like you are in an Oasis in paradise as the temperatures go down at least 10 degrees as you are sitting with the cool ocean breeze all day long! Great spot to have lunch, watch the sun go down with a cold beer or cocktail with great people and have a quiet awesome dinner! Enjoy!

You can tell this place receives a ton of traffic from visitors and guests to Samara. The laid-back vibe, tasty beverages, and beach access make this a prime spot for after-beach drinks or a casual bite.

this is a great spot on the beach in Samara to relax and enjoy an ice cold cerveza and freshly made cocktail. You will always feel welcome here. The food is delish. If you want to feel like a local, then this is the place to go.

Not my favorite. Overpriced, and I had an expensive shawl stolen there, with a slick denial made by the personnel who probably stole it. A poor attitude from the manager on duty the next day, when I again checked to see if someone might have discovered it and turned it in.

We were told to go here for the sushi, but we did not want to try the sushi after tasting the appetizers. We ordered chips and guacamole - chips were stale and from a bag - and bruchetta - was greasy and covered in what i believe was cheddar cheese. Maybe the sushi was okay, but we were afraid to try it.
