It's in a lovely location. The food is ok, but for the price its not extraordinary. We had a surtido, the stuffed chicken and the churrasco strips. The churrasco strips were great!

Very, very good restaurant. The location, the food portions, the service, everything was in place. The view is simply spectacular, you will feel like you are in a movie set.

I have been a customer for over 15 years, always returning due to the views and thinking one day they will get it right. I have grown gray hair..waiting. Poor quality of food at high prices. The only thing worth something here is a cold Heineken and the views. Period.

We were staying at the Parador villas del Mar Hau and since the restaurant is right in the Parador we decided to give it a try. The food here was GREAT and the prices I found them decent.

This restaurant is in Parador Villas del Mar Hau. We paid $5/day to use the private beach at the Villas, and the restaurant there is perfect to grab some lunch. Their drinks were good and we liked our food too. Beautiful views!
