Great location on the beach but this trip advisor ranking has it all wrong. First, the food is marginal at best. I mean marginal. We had ceviche, two types, crab tostada, garlic shrimp, and the only thing that was really good was the guacamole. Here's another piece of advice....the view....it isn't free. Wait till you get your bill

This is a standard in San Carlos. It's just a little ways out of town and right on the beach. Great place to catch the sunset and listen to some good music. Oh ya, the drinks and food is good too.

My favorite place for margaritas in San Carlos. You can't beat the location! Great food (I am vegetarian and love the nachos and guac). Staff is very friendly!

The restaurant is a great place to hang out, great drinks! Love the location and staff. Best beach bar in San Carlos, you could easily spend a lazy afternoon just hanging out.

Nice atmosphere, cool tunes, they have a good deal on a bucket of beer, also great food, and can't beat the view. Location is a bit remote, but if you're at Playa Blanca or San Carlos Plaza, it's worth the walk here.

Great location for a beach bar. Food is just ok. Nachos were soggy and cold. Want to love this place because of it's fun vibe but they really need to improve the food quality.

Food was ok, but more expensive than nice restaurants with a view in town. Brought us the wrong dish, but that might have been our fault.

Good beach bar atmosphere! The food was okay, drinks were small and over priced compared to the other places on the beach. Service was very slow. Choose to go on down the beach the rest of the week we were there.

If you are in San Carlos, you must go to the Peso. You will find a mix of ex pats, locals and tourists, both Mexican and Gringo. It is everything a beach bar should be ... laid back and friendly with a beautiful view and a nice selection of strong drinks. Their ceviche is great and a bit out of... More
