It cost $30 for two dinners and desserts. It wasn't a disappointment but wasn't as great as their very high ratings indicated. Their chicken and pineapple barbeque sauce were tasty and their green salad was just as nice but their beans were not anything special. We were most impressed with their passion fruit cheesecake and flourless chocolate torte, they were absolutely delicious, and alternating bites of each was even better.

We had the Peruvian ceviche - incredible - and shared a taco plate (chicken and dorado with salad and yucca fries). Everything was delicious and the service was super friendly!

My girlfriend and I ate lunch and dinner here several times. The fish tacos are great and the ceviche is the best we’ve had over the last two weeks. I would high recommend the cheese cake if you have room!

After a long day of surfing and exploring, my family and I decided to pick up to go food for dinner here, since we had read so many good reviews. The restaurant was moderately busy, but had several tables open. We ordered food to go and got a few drinks to sip while waiting. The staff was nice and told us that our food would be ready in about 20 minutes, so we too a seat. 20 minutes later, our drinks were finished and there were still several tables who had arrived before us and didn’t have food. We ended up waiting 45 minutes for our food was frustrating. The food with good, but nothing special, and nothing that should have taken 45 minutes to make. I’m sure that this restaurant is great, but our experience was not.
