You can't go too fast or you'll miss this hidden gem. Visit from states. Had the shrimp, octopus, and their incredible steak. Recommend making reservations. Great atmosphere and delightful waiter. Recommend.
This restaurant is an hidden gem in Punta Uva. The food, the atmosphere and the service are just perfect. Thank you for having us. See you soon! Andrea & Rossella

Enjoyed this restaurant but you need to bring cash! great service, food and atmosphere. You definitely need to drive as it is in between Manzanillo and Punta Uva.
