Friend and I went after a day at the beach expecting typical soda-type food but were blown away by this place! The fish casado was delicious, ample portion and beautifully plated as well. Would definitely recommend.

This nice set up resturant in front of the beach with sand floors and open to the cool breezes from the ocean is a delicius place to rest and eat. The cold Coronas or the natural juices were very refreshment also. Don't miss it!
