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

Very good hotel accomodations and excellent food- takes a long time to serve the food. But it is worth the wait. Cold beers and all Flor de Caña rum you want during your stay.

Well the food is decent, the coconut oil give the food a nice taste, the service is awesome in this place, you can order the food and they can take it to the beach, and of course the beach is super clean, and you have a boat bar where you can order drinks there and not in the restaurant.

The food we ordered was good but it was the most expensive meal we had on the island. Your mostly paying for the view on the beach which was beautiful but picnic center is right next to the Arenas, same beach but lower prices on the food. We would not eat here again. Much better places to eat.
