The food here is simply out of the world, the staff is very nice, and the prices were reasonable, especially when you consider the quality of the meal.

Great atmosphere! The ceviches are all amazing, as is the complimentary fish dip with plantain chips. The Madfish Sandwich and the Arroz con Camarón are both phenomenal as well!!
