“Insane Fish Tacos”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Went here during a rainstorm to escape the deluge & ordered some Ceviche & fish tacos. Both were delicious. They melt this amazing cheese in the bottom of the tacos & serve them to you with a side of spicy pineapples. So good. Service was a bit slow, but we had WiFi to occupy us, so we were satiated.

“GREAT FOOD BUT MUSIC TOO LOUD”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We ate here twice because the atmosphere is friendly and the food is excellent - no quarrels there at all - but why oh why do so many of these restaurants seem to think that very loud music will improve the place ? This restaurant wasn't filled with young surfers getting drunk who need loud music but all sorts, youngsters, families, older couples and we eventually had to very apologetically whisper a request to our waitress for her to discretely turn down the music, which she did with a smile - and no one noticed and coversations continued, possibly with less strain on the vocal chords. But an hour later when a tropical storm started and we had torrential rain on the thatched roof, someone behind the bar racked up the music level again - once again an example of employees choosing what they want rather than thinking of the customers.
Only other gripe would be that the service is very very slow but when the food eventually arrives it's always good.

“Awesome”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Staff was friendly and inviting, the setting reminded us of a mini tropical forest, a lot of palm trees, shade everywhere, bathrooms were very clean. The menu was plentiful and reasonable. The service was fast and efficient, and the food was great!!
