We had a yummy dinner here. Small menu that looks like it changes night to night. Delicious shrimp and fish in the 140-180 peso range. Huge plates of excellent pasta w pesto for the kids, 60 pesos. Excellent pina colada. Run by nice couple. One of 2-3 best meals in PE.

Joanne did a wonderful job of looking after my wife's special dietary needs. They have a menu that changes daily, and I enjoyed a hearty beef stew cooked to perfection. The restaurant was busy with lots of snow-bird repeat clients. We will return with friends when they visit

You will enjoy any meal you order here. It is possible to contact the owners by telephone or email to make a reservation or to order a specific meal, including liver & onions. If you arrive early enough you can enjoy drinks on the rooftop terrace. I have not stayed in the hotel but I understand that many people enjoy... More

Nothing to rave about, but didn't hate it! Service was not bad, but server was more interested in his regulars (which we would have been with the right service!)

The variety of the specials of the day. Always fresh caught and always delicious. There is usually a choice of 5 or 6 different items.

The menu changes almost daily as it depends on what is available locally. We had garlic shrimp which were great. The arrachera and garlic mashed potatoes were also a hit. Lovely evening spent here

Paul and Jane make you feel right at home from the minute you arrive. This is home away from home. The rooms are large and clean. The rates are excellent. The restaurant has a very friendly environment and the food is delicious. The sangrias are prepared to your taste. We did not want to leave. Paul and Jane we will... More

After all the raving reviews we were a bit disappointed. Yes, the place is nice and cozy, the food is definitely fresh. But it's kind of boring. If you'd like some comfort food, this is a good place to go. The service was extremely slow (although the lady who is in charge of the kitchen seems very nice). And for... More

We were soooo looking forward to our evening. Lovely, romantic setting. Excellent food rep We were nicely settled at a large 2 table setting- we rec'd approval to sit there. Suddenly a big swoosh and we were relocated to a smaller unmade table. Very rude. A larger group had arrived. Ok. Then put the empty tables together in the front!... More
