They took great care to make sure umbrellas protected us from the hot sun. The beer was cold and the food was tasty. My ceviche was beautifully presented and very tasty- bits of mango made... More

Great atmosphere and the setting is right on the beach. Service was good and we had a nice dinner. We felt like it was a great value!!! Live local music and Samba dancing lessons.

Super location on the beach. Live band. Had calamari and coconut shrimp appies. Very good. Honest waiter said the fish wasn't their best offering so ordered something else. Good Marguerita's. Fun place to people watch.
