Good food, service and atmosphere. Family friendly. There is a seperate building that has TV's and more seating plus a bar. Good place to hang and watch a game, etc.

Was not sure what to expect, but it was truly delightful.
I had a chicken dish which was great and my husband had jambalaya also great.
Great appetizers.

I fell in love with the Cartegena style house-made Shrimp Sausage Quesadillas with mango tomatilla chutney. I enjoy finding something new and this hit the spot for me. My better half had the Campeche Fish tacos with papaya pico de gallo. Both meals reminded us of great dining in Quintana Roo, Mexico. We bought Randy's sauces to try at home and if you get a chance to attend his chats before a book signing, it is an entertaining and educational experience. Would surely do it again!

Best meal we had for a week of eating out on Sanibel. Highly recommend the food. Still trying to find out the secret recipe for their sliced potatoes.

We had a long wait on a Saturday night and three high top tables sat empty for 20-minutes. Ordered paella and for $23 it was good. Asked but never found out what type of fish was in it. We got the calamari salad and it was large (lots of lettuce). Key lime good but compote seemed past its prime. Take it or leave it.
