Great place for a family meal! Something for everyone (local treats and traditional gringo eats for the kiddos). Spectacular view. Service never disappoints! Visited twice in three days and can recommend breakfast and lunch. We returned here after being introduced to this restaurant three years...More

This place looks sleek and clean and newly renovated when you walk in. But seems like they are cutting corners when it comes to food. My step dad was craving chicken so he had the wings. They were odd but that’s his fault for ordering...More

Food is average, service is poor. The location is good, right on the water but there are many other places with the same good location. It’s probably over expensive for the quality of food served. Would not go back.

This place was quite expensive, but the service was very good, as was the food. We two fish dishes and a pasta all of which were very decent!

Ceviche was all liquid - almost no fish/shrimp at all. Waitress said she knew but blamed it on the fact that they didn't prepare it but bought it that way. My friend's fish was tough.

Whole fish was excellent, enough for two, had a coconut sauce on it. Looks out on the water. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

We had chicken and rice or patatillas for 11$ each. The portion sizes are okay, but the food is not special. Would not go there again, but do not regret going there.

Decent restaurant, the watermelon drink was very tasty and just what I wanted! Chicken strips and fries were pretty standard. We were informed upon ordering that the other dish we wanted wasn't available so we ordered penne pasta. We were served spaghetti, which was fine...More

Good location and looks newly renovated - has a decent view out over the water towards the other islands. Service was friendly but not so attentive. Food was average - I had calamari which was not the best. Pineapple juice was good.
