Good value, had a really good fish, I would stick to the the grilled stuff (avoid the curry). Its a local hangout - they have an open mike on Sat. Not the best in the Playa but still an interesting choice for dinner. Also has pool / ping-pong and decent bar

Loved this place. After staying in Samara for 5 nights, we thought we had run out of dining options and would need to do a repeat of something we'd already done. After visiting with Glenn at the info center, we deicided to try this place. So glad we did! Great food, great service, great prices, and great ambiance! Our bill was only $36 for a family of 4 and included 4 "adult" beverages. Also, live music during the dinner hour (started 7ish). And, our server was the most personable and friendliest of any we encountered on our trip. Seemed to be a big ex-pat hangout which seemed to add to its liveliness. Tehre is also a pool off the patio that we were free to use, but it was raining at the time. Overall, just a great restaurant. My only disappointment was that we didn't discover the place until our last night in town.
