Started with asparagus fries which were amazing! Thai salad was delicious and had a great spicy flavour, Blackened fish sandwich was just ok. Seating is crowded and street traffic makes it noisy.

No ocean view. I believe Las Brisas, on the north side of the main beach, has ocean view. We didn't eat there so I can't comment on the restaurant.
