Garcia's has always been my favorite seafood restaurant. It is operated by a family and they are into everything they do. The menu is at fair price and the service is always impeccable. I would return many times...It was that good!!!!!

This place is an institution not to be missed. Although the place looks a bit rustic, the fish and the conch are excellent and the local atmosphere is fabulous. Cuban restaurant not to be missed, where you ça go by car or by boat.
