You eat on picnic benches and a sand floor at this "local specialties" restaurant. We had the ceviche for an appetizer and a mixture of their seafood specials for dinner. Highly recommend. Located right next to the airport so it is easy to find.

We ate here twice during our four day stay. Service and food was awesome. A stand out was their pork tostada. My hubby felt it was the best meal in town that he had. Highly recommend. Easy to find by the airport.
