Huge place right on the beach. Also has a swimming pool. Were there with 12 people. You can pick out your own fish. We ended up with a 16 lb. red snapper. Cooked to perfection. Served with French fries and salad. Had sopes, guacamole, epanadas---all very good. It is a ways out of town in an area called Barra Vieja.

After reading trip advisor we decided to try that esmirna del mar place even though we r used to going here while in barra vieja for the fish. Thankfully, we had enough time to go here too.
