Wouldn't recommend this place. After waiting for way more than half an hour we've got pasta and hamburger which were OK, seviche which was very very average and fish which was horrible (one should try hard to cook it so bad). Quite expensive for what...More

Ate here our last night on the island. Both our meals were very good but found the portion sizes to be a little small for the cost. Service was amazing, the real highlight of this restaurant.

We tried several things, as a family would. The food was very good. The service was lacking. We ran out of napkins, and i had to grab sone from other empty tables.

Ordered the whole fried fish of the day and a caprese salad. The salad was good, made with fresh mozzarella. The fish was overcooked. Service was excellent.
