I would never have thought to eat ribs in Mexico. The waiter talked me into it and they were awesome! We took 10 people without a reservation and it was no problem for them. Loved the outdoor seating, great food, and great service. Loved it.

Great beachfront location, amazing ceviche and tacos. We went twice during our weekend stay. We had fish ceviche, octopus/scallop/fish ceviche, shrimp tacos al pastor, and smoked marlin tacos.

Right on the beach, open air. This place was highly recommended by folks at our condo we were staying. I wasn't really crazy about the coconut shrimp. Might have to try it for dinner sometime.

This restaurant is a busy little spot as the food, location, staff, sunset and drinks are incredible. The Red Snapper is delicious and definitely worth the visit. The atmosphere is fantastic, you can be seated inside or on the beach. The ambience is just perfect.

I'm not sure about online reservations, we walked in waited for about 15 minutes and the hostess (very nice) had a handwritten list. No credit cards accepted! Which was a surprise, since there is no visible sign.
