The location cannot be beat, great place to watch the sunset or refresh after swimming or surfing. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The food we had was good, pizza was great. I don't like pizza very much, but the one we had was filled with fresh vegetables so I imagine pizza lovers would enjoy this place. It is a... More

Great cocktails and good food watching the most beautiful sunset! (come around 5 pm for beach sunset and happy hours) Best ceviche and octopus salad! Didn't try their pizza but looked ok. Open air restaurant, service is very friendly and little bit slower but "pura vida".

One of the few places that has a professional chef in the kitchen. The best shrimp with rice I've had in a long time. Pizzas are brick oven cooked to perfect with a great variety to choose from. The restaurant is right on the beach for some amazing views at sunset.

The title says it all. We had lunch here and enjoyed a shady spot looking out to the ocean but the food did not excite. The chicken caesar salad was nice and the chicken tender. The pizza however wasn't great, too much cheese, little flavour and generally quite poor. This place has one of a few spots on the beach,... More

We came here twice - once just for sunset and cocktails and an excellent shrimp ceviche. And the next time for some beer during the day and a pizza. Was talked into the meat lovers pizza and can give it two thumbs up...but be prepared it is a large pizza. Their bartenders and waiters are friendly. The music is good.... More

The food was very good but the service was barely existent. Had to ask to have our table wiped off when we sat down. The cocktails weren't very good either. I wish I had ordered a beer instead. After we ate, we waited and waited for our server to return. He never did. Finally had to go to the bar... More

We liked the open air seating (under roof) and also a few outside tables with umbrellas. The Hawaiian pizza was large enough for two, and it was very good.

After reading the reviews, we decided to come here for dinner last night. My husband order a pepperoni pizza and I have sirloin with mushrooms sauce. After waiting 1/2 hr, my sirloin came tasted chewy and salty. The meat doesn't taste like sirloin at all, and the vegetables taste like it came out from the frozen bag.

Ate here twice last week. Have been here before and we always look forward to our meals. The pizza is awesome! Great looking salads. Open air restaurant looking onto the beach. Service is typically slow but that is part of the charm. Clean restaurant with good prices on drinks.
