“Awesome”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

This place is on the main road and has a great menu selection. You have to try their pizza and spagehetti. They also make an incredible blackened Mahi. The service was great and it is very laid back.

“Great food but service is a work in progress”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We went here with a party of 16/4 families. When I called, they said no problem on taking 16 for a reservation but when we got there they didn't have any space. We split up our party which was fine for the night to separate the 8 kids from adults. The place was packed so I ended up getting two bottles of wine from the bar, opening it ourselves, I also got the water pitcher and glasses from the bar and served us. The waitress wrote down our order, came back 30 minutes later and said she lost our order so we had to reorder. Two people received meals 20 minutes ahead of the others. Because we were on vacation, had ok red wine and the ceiling fans were great, we didn't care. The food was a ten and well worth the chaos if you're easy going. If you are not, don't dine here as its s new place and they're working out the kinks.

Reviewed March 28, 2013

Great Tuna and ceviche. The fish was really fresh. The tuna carpaccio was great. With so many good places to eat in Playa Guiones, Il Basico and the Beach Dog were the only places we went back to more than once.

“Pizza,Pasta, whatever you wanta!!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

I went here with my two travelin' buds on a tuesday(the restaurant at our hotel was closed) and ordered the ubiquitous Pasta Bolognese. It was excellent,my friends both ordered pasta dishes as well and they were satisfied too!! I was here last year with a bunch of guys and we ordered pizza and it was very good (it's a hard thing to please New Yorkers when it comes to Pizza!!)I will definately return in the future and I highly recommend this place!! The owner also did some time at Giardino Tropicale before setting out on his own!!
