We had two dinners here and absolutely loved it. Very good quality for money. The starters, pastas and grilled seafood are all delicious. The place is rather small which makes it nice and cosy.

Our hotel concierge sent us here telling us, "the fish you are eating was swimming in the sea this morning." It was 9pm and we weren't hungry, but we ventured over for a snack. We ended up ordering the catch of the day fish tacos...More

Expensive but with first quality ingredients. The fish is daily fresh fished (they say) and the Way they cook it is absolutely delicious. An average meal costs 600 pesos plus tips. Consider that a Mexican earns about 100 pesos for a 12 hrs working day.
