Great location on the beach! Good food/fair prices. A great place to meet the Zancudo locals and grab a beer. Rick and Lori are great hosts.

Our mixed drinks were okay but nothing special, we ordered margaritas and mojitos. They were average but that's about it. The food was about the same good, but not good enough for a return trip.

Good food and it feels like everyone knows you. On Sundays they have a horseshoe tournament. It's a really good time.

And some times, three times a day. Their fresh fish had a choice of the coconut curry sauce or the Vera Cruz. Both were outstanding. Shirley's fish tacos were the best I ever had that I didn't make. Lori and Rick were great hosts. Carla was an amazing bartender. Cold beers, some music and great attitude. One of my favorites... More

A group of ten of us stayed at the Sol Y Mar cabins and ate here at least once a day. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and very helpful. I'm not normally a big fan of fish but the oohs and aahs of my fellow diners prompted me to try and I was not disappointed. I... More

We ate several meals - it seems to be a popular local hangout for ex-pats. Enjoyed giant fish tacos and great breakfasts. They also have a extensive book exchange and a little clothing boutique.
