Our group enjoyed ourselves! The drinks were good and the seafood was outstanding. Recommend the house filet of the day, the sarandeado snapper, and the shrimp was good but a little overcooked. A great spot to go for sunset.

My partner and I wanted to experience some local seafood whilst relaxing in a beach setting. After reviewing the restaurants, we decided to visit here. We decided to order the seafood platter for two which consisted of lobster, crab, scallops, octopus, fish fillet, garlic bread and coconut shrimp so that we could experience the local ocean whilst sitting in a relaxing environment with the waves crashing and stars above.

When the platter arrived, we were quite disappointed as the lobster and crab were very small and the shrimp on the platter was not coconut shrimp, just grilled shrimp. Throughout the whole time after the platter arrived, our server did not once come over to speak with us. We did see him making a special drink for a group of ladies that took over ten minutes, but after that he did walk past us a number of times and not once spoke to us. When we eventually caught his attention, we stated that the shrimp was not coconut shrimp and he went to speak to the cooks. He came back and provided an excuse that was textbook and would not accept that it stated on the menu that the platter included coconut shrimp and he just shrugged his shoulders.

Now for the price of 795 for this platter, we expected it to be better than what it was and along with the extremely poor service, the obvious mistake made by the restaurant whether that be by false advertising or just pure ignorance, we will not be returning to this restaurant.

We enjoyed our visit to this restaurant on our first night of our trip. It was lovely to sit on the beach and have delicious seafood and margaritas (there are non seafood options too).The service was good, and there was live music at the restaurant next-door which was plenty loud enough. Prices were mid-high, not a cheap meal but definitely worth it for the food and setting.

The only negative were the constant beach vendors coming by, even though we were a few tables in from the beach. As long as your table was on the sand, you were fair game and it did not make for an overly relaxing evening. Just be prepared to be bothered ;)

We didn't enjoy the food or the nuance. The only redeeming quality was the sound of the surf. The staff were brusque and unsmiling and the fish tasted off. We also found it expensive comparatively. Many other much better options nearby.
