We love this restaurant and ate there several times on our visit. The staff are uniformly friendly and service is terrific. The food is overall excellent, well prepared and creatively seasoned. It is far from typical Mexican food, so don't expect enchiladas, quesadillas or chili....More

Nothing on the menu stood out here... average food at average prices. Had the fish of the day and it was fresh but lacked flavour.

Located close to the beach on one of the main streets, it is great to relax and have nice lunch. Drinks are large and well served, and food is fresh and nicely presented. Not elegant, so you can wear sandals shorts.

Great food, excellent service, and iguanas on the roof in the evening. Plus, you can use a credit card. The mahi mahi cilantro dish is great!

This place had been recommended, and the setting is nice, but the food was mediocre from my perspective. Maybe it was our selections, but the meals were not something to write home about. The chicken mole was not complex or very tasty.

This place is nestled on a rooftop and you don't want to miss it!!! Nothing special about the atmosphere, but the food is beyond delicious!!! We had the seared ahi tuna and it melted in our mouths! The food took quite a while to come...More
