It is a place where locals eat seafood, and it is very good. I ordered fried fish, and it was a very good portion and as a side, it came with rice and vegetables marinated with lemon.

That's what the locals will tell you, and they are dead on. I was there for lunch and ordered a grilled fish platter, which comes with a coleslaw type of salad and some rice. The fish offered today was a Pargo (Snapper) grilled to perfection....More
