We had dinner here and I choose the tenderloin beef with BBQ sauce .My husband had the tenderloin with chimichurri. I have had better chimichurri sauces before. Compliments for the way the vegetables were prepared.
Sometimes it looks like the beachfront restaurants have too much personnel so they start to look bored.

We asked the locals for a good place to eat on the waterfront and they sent us here. We were a party of five and all ordered different menu items. Fried fish fingers, fried whole fish, chicken, steak, shrimp cocktail and other appetizers, all good. Service was good too and the prices are much better than El Timon, two doors east. Will definitely go back.

If you are looking for local seafood with a view of the water, this is a great stop. We had the mixed seafood platter. It was enough seafood for four. Lobster, crab, octopus, whole fried red snapper, grilled fish, shrimp and clams. It was great seafood. The service was excellent. Waiter was very attentive and responsive. I didn't give it 5 stars only because it just isn't a five star restaurant. But for local seafood, it is the best. It wasn't as much of a bar as many of the other stops along the way, so it was quieter and clean.

Do you like octopus? I like it sooo much! I ate it twice here. They cooked it, like in Greece or in Portugal. With oil and garlic... Yammy! Before all dishes, you get banana chips with 2 sauces like appetaizer for free. You should try also their fishes. Juice from watermelon and melon are very good too. Stuff is friendly and quite good. Remember, they write a tip(10%) to your check without asking, but leave it or not depends of you.
