This is an outdoor restaurant serving both Mexican food and fresh fish. The outdoor atmosphere is beautiful. Lights in the trees add a touch of whimsy, Mariachi entertainers join you at the table for your choice of song. A great place to celebrate an event.

We stopped in and had a late lunch and found the food really good and the service was excellent. If you are in town and looking for a retreat from the crowds to enjoy a bite and glass of wine, this is the place.
