Finally a restaurant european style where they dont drown the fish and meat in enormous quantities of (hot) sauces like most typical Mexican restaurants. By far the best restaurant in the top 10 by TripAdvisor.

Went for dinner, my friend ordered soup but it was too salty. I had a salad that was just okay. One other person in our party order fish and was happy with it. Sat out on patio which was nice.

The place does not look like much from the outside, but it's actually quite nice once you go in. Food was good, yet nothing special. Service was average at the most.

All of it is fresh, the decoration is pretty original, it's shaped like a boat, nautical theme at it's best, also has a kid's area with games and rides. The food is super fresh, try the minilla, all of it is good and close to all the new hotels in Boca del Rio, it's a sure bet!!

I had carpaccio of salmon - it was smoked salmon but was ok, and arrachera, which was good. Dessert was pushed hard and I tried the cheesecake which had zero flavour. coffee... More
