Eclectic and excellent restaurant in the Strip. Check out their website for special menus, and make a reservation for the Kamayan Dinner(eaten with your hands) well in advance.

Had lunch there - fish tacos with conch soup. Were very good, could have used one of those taco holders because the second taco got a little soggy by the time I ate it. Also had two mojitos which were excellent! Service was good -...More
