“Beach-front lunch spot”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We ate there twice while hanging out at Arenas Beach next door with our kids - 11 and 13. It was much better than we actually expected for a beach restaurant. I would not go out of my way to eat there at night (La Princessa's food is so much better) but we had a perfectly adequate lunch and the Victoria's were nice and cold. Service was very friendly.

“one of the nicest spots on the island”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Beachfront location in a beautiful palm-roofed building. Service at lunch slow, but at dinner very good (however, we were the only ones there....) Good food, ice cold beer. Share the local specialty whole fried fish (yellowtail), its huge!

“best food on the island”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Now, I will be honest, if I had to do it over again, I would take the time to schedule a meal in someone's home. There were several that other tourists told us were great. However, of all of the restaurants that we tried, the food here was good both times we ate there and everyone was thrilled with their meals. There were 6 of us travelling together, 2 of whom do not care for seafood, and 2 of us who are extremely picky about our seafood (if it's fishy, we can't eat it). I would definitely recommend it!
