I had the seafood stew, it was very good. My wife had a scallop wrap and it was very good. The margaritas were excellent. We will be back.

The views are beautiful. The food quickly draws your attention to the table. Top notch recipes and presentation. We loved the chocolate clams, the appetizers as well as the mains. Worth the effort!

Made the dirt road drive one afternoon. Was a bit slow with our little rental car but worth it. Great location right on the water. Great seafood tacos and very friendly staff.

The most gracious hosts. Fantastic food, don't let the drive detour you from this place. You will tell all your friends about it. The chocolate clams are almost the best, actually the chocolate cake and the margarita tie for best.

Worth the drive or arrive by boat after a trip to the island. Fresh seafood in a stunning small open air restaurant. Charming and colorful.

The restaurant does not accept credit cards. We were there 4 days ago and I asked the owner who said no, because they are off the grid. They accept cash only...pesos or U.S. Dollars.
