The guacamole was made fresh, the margarita's were made with the proper ratio of tequila, lime and triple sec. and the food ingredients were fresh. You could tell they just cut the peppers and onions for the fajitas. we will definitely come back

This is another place we visit each time we are on the island. Food is fresh and delicious and the margaritas are a vacation in a glass.
