This restaurant at the end nearest to town has always been good and consistent each time we go. The food is good and the service is good. We like it very much and would not hesitate to suggest a stop in for drinks or eats anytime.

Good for pizza, pastas and appetizers. They handled a party of 20 of us in a very timely fashion. There are two El Cayuco places and we were in the one over the bridge which is an outdoor place. Very casual and the staff very pleasant.
