The restaurant is open air - no inside seating and offers a somewhat limited menu - the same day after day! The service is inexplicably slow. There appear to be plenty of staff but the way in which they must hand write orders - separately for food and beverage and then have customers review and sign is so cumbersome it's... More

Foo: is OK. Just average Corn Island stuff with desultory wait staff. Beach location is the major attraction.

Stayed at the hotel (see other review) ate in the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a few days. The included breakfast was good. We stuck with traditional Nica and it was good. Perhaps two slices of bread would have been better but we were too lazy to ask for more. Lunch - hubby recommends the fish soup as... More

First feel of this restaurant is the staff is not overly friendly. Presentation, taste, freshness earn it three stars but lost two stars for okay service, small potions and over priced meal, almost double to that of the rest of the island.

We went 3 times and had Adin as our waiter/bartender. He was so attentive and made the best pina coladas. We were not hotel guests so we had to pay $10 each to enjoy the beautiful beach but it was taken off our bar/food bill so it really cost nothing!

I'm very picky about ordering meat when I'm not in the United States, as I'm not much of meat eater. But I just was in the mood for a burger so I took a chance. I was delighted with my choice. I don't even remember what my husband ordered because I was concentrating on my good burger.

We had lobster in a Caribbean sauce (coconut based) and the conch al ajillo. Both tasty, but pretty pricey. We weren't staying at hotel, so we had. $10 per person minimum we needed to spend to use their lounge chairs. No problem making that minimum! The Arenas beach is beautiful and serene.

We arrived in Corn Island very hungry and this was our first stop. The staff was very friendly and the food was top notch. Four of us had a delicious seafood lunch, including ceviche, lobster cocktail, fish carpaccio and the fillet of fish muniere. Everything was fresh and delicious. It was exactly what we were looking for.

The food in the restaurant is good. Price is ok. The seafood soup was very delicious. However, the service is slow. They did not had any control on our bills or what we had ordered so we could pay quickly. The view of the beach is the best I have seen, the water is really calm and you can swim... More

We started with fish ceviche served out on the beach at the boat bar. Great tasting and a large portion. Of course the drinks were ice-cold and the setting was incredible as the sun set on the pristine waters of the white sand beach. Later we ate dinner in the main restaurant. I had the pineapple chicken which was grilled... More
