While visiting the are a few of us went to the El Cabito. The trip there was exciting and the view when we arrived was fabulous, It was well worth the $30 taxi ride. The food was good but it was expensive, Entre plus a drink ran $35 each. .by the time we left it was dark and we couldn't find the washrooms. I don't think are well marked. . We would go back again but maybe for a few drinks in the afternoon..Dining was a little to expensive I thought for what u get

The views and location of this restaurant is amazing! However, restaurant is overpriced ($15-$40 per entree) and the quality of the food is hit or miss. We ate here twice. First time we went everything was great!! Second time I was shocked at the quality of the fish. It was incredibly oily and not fresh. We told the owner and he kept coming up with excuses, as if, we weren't tasting it correctly. We hardly ate anything because it tasted horrible and he only refunded one entree. I much prefer monte azul!!!

To describe the drive here as harrowing is an understatement, but you won't regret it once you arrive. The place probably seats a total of 25 people and the views out into the bay are absolutely stunning. The food is also top-notch. My better half and I had the seafood paella and it was one of the best we have ever had. A very, very enjoyable experience.

A real challenge to get to, over a dirt road through the jungle to a cliff overlooking the sea, but absolutely worth it. We found this restaurant-bar filled with "expats" from a variety of European and Latin American countries. A real experience!

Looking for a romantic dinner - this is a must. Open deck, thatched roof, hanging off the cliff, at the end of a dirt road and with scrumptious seafood. Can't be beat!
