Had dinner on a deck facing the ocean with a cool breeze blowing. the perfect spot to enjoy where you are. Service was excellent, the food closer to average. There is better food on Pescador Dr. but no better location.

The food was awesome we actually went back the next day for our second rounds of tacos. But the main reason we went back was Hector our server he was awesome. Very welcoming and prompt he was top notch.
