“Great little spot on the beach, laid back and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Good food, right on the beach. Watch the sunset from the upper level balcony. Beautiful! Some of the beach sales people will try and sell you stuff but just say no thanks and they move on.

“Casual Mexican restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

This is a wonderful casual Mexican restaurant on the beach. The people working the dining room and the kitchen are friendly and attentive. The food is very good at reasonable prices. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here during our week in Punta de Mita, and highly recommend the restaurant.

“Incredible seafood, view & service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Locals in Puerto Vallarta told us about this restaurant and it did not disappoint! Our waiter took us to the 2nd level of this beautifully decorated restaurant (yellow & green décor), with a view of the beach. He advised that the seafood meal would be plenty for both of us for lunch (which we appreciated because it definitely was). Lobster, prawns, fish & octopus - it was incredible. Afterwards we were invited to use the lounge chair, outdoor shower below on the beach. What an awesome place - it was worth the 1 & 20 minute bus ride from Puerto Vallarta!

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Right on the beach, excellent sea food - very fresh! Don't forget your cameras as the best sunsets happen there! Little expensive for Mexico but worth it. Live music too!
