We ate breakfast there 2 times because we loved the food and couldn't believe the price. Coffee, juice and a burrito for low price.

It is upstairs with a view of the cove in daylight. Simple dishes but well made and very inexpensive. It is a bit older in the decorations but that makes it fun!

We had breakfast (Tico plate) and dinner here (tacos) and it was delicious and a very good value. Nice ocean and mountain view.

This previously highly valued, well located, low-end, small inn-resort, has new management of an uncertain quality. I have learned many of the long-term staff are gone and the attractive iconic decor has been removed. One reviewer thought the inn might be torn down; another observed terribly unclean conditions.

The place was crawling with bugs such as ants and tiny insects visible to the naked eye on the tables and floor. I had to walk out as I couldn't take it.

These are the best I've ever eaten. There is a soft shell covering a hard shell full of yummmmmm. Two to... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and decided to explore the area and found this little gem and had a really nice lunch. Hubbie had a mariners deluxe burger and really enjoyed it - I had chicken fajitas which was delicious. We also had a couple of beers. It cost us approx £20 which is fairly expensive by UK... More

Either for a drink or a meal, the prices are reasonable and the food is good The premises are not fancy rather familiar. There is a terrace which we preferred but seating is limited.
