Ordered a shrimp and fish Botana for 4 and it was huge! It could have easily served 6. Great value for the price. Quality was fantastic and staff was friendly. Family oriented.

Hi, on the CHC website it says that you have to dress smart/casual (shirts for men) and wear closed toe shoes for evening dinner, is this absolutely necessary?

No is not necessary. You can wear flip flops and muscle shirts and you'll be ok.
