I ate there a few times. The sunset view is amazing. The food was pretty good. Nothing that I'd write home about. But the prices seem high for what you get. $6 for a rum and coke seems a bit much

Dear sonnydixon,
I apologize that you did not enjoy your numerous visits to our establishment. We are always trying to provide an amazing experience and obviously in your case we fell quite short of the mark. The prices that you quoted for the alcoholic beverages are the norm in this town and I sincerely do not believe that they are over-priced considering that it is a high quality rum and a two ounce pour. As for the food, what can I say? We cannot please everyone even though we try and sometimes ones taste and what's on offer do not mesh. I have read some of your other reviews and am glad that you found some other places in town that you enjoyed. We have always tried to deliver a high quality affordable experience to our guests and I am truly sorry that we were unable to do this with you. I hope all in all you enjoyed your stay in Santa Teresa and that you had a nice holiday,
Barb.

The view is amazing, but you have to go before sunset, otherwise it is just dark. The food was excellent and a good value, being about $15 per entree, which in Chicago would be very inexpensive for a top notch restaurant. The fish was excellent as was the appetizer. They had good sangria as well. The staff was a bit frazzeled the night we went, but it is a beautiful setting so no worries. It is hard to drive up to though and parking is tight, but worth the trip.

Insane flavors and view. You can't beat this place ! Make sure to get the mixed seafood grill and save room for one of the desserts. I recommend the hot brownie served with ice cream

The best place I ate while in Santa Teresa. Quite frankly, one of the best restaurants I have EVER eaten at. I'm not picky, but I like good food, and this was some of the freshest, most flavorfully prepared I've had. I enjoyed a wonderful coconut curry shrimp dish that was to DIE for. I even went back the next day to have the same thing! Yes, a bit more expensive than othe Santa Teresa restaurants, but so well worth it.
