“Best place on the island to view sunsets”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

With an unobstructed view over the lagoon, this restaurant offers you a lovely place to enjoy the sunset in a classy environment. Their small deck has tables and a small attached floating deck has seating for enjoying drinks and appetizers. We made a reservation to eat outside and were seated at a table for 4 on what felt like our own private deck. Food and service were quite good, but the real star of the evening was the beautiful western sky, clouds and sunset.

“Great Fajitas”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

My wife had the chile rellenos which were good but my black Angus fajitas were exceptional. The restaurant looked new or maybe just renovated or under new management It has a great view looking out to the causeway bridge near Port Isabel.

“Delicious new restaurant!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Sleak and stylish inside and out, this restaurant looked AND tasted great! Talked with the manager the night we visited and they were still going strong even in November when most of the island is dead! They are still fairly new, but they know how to make amazing mexican dishes that look and taste fresh. Plus they sit directly on the bay so you have great views any time. The big flood lights at night are really neat for seeing the fish and swans glowing in and on the water!

“Good food nice service”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Great location on bay for evening sunset dining. They could put in some window treatments as it does get bright. Friendly staff- and we were there right after the hectic Easter rush. Good food, not cheap but worth the visit.
