This little restaurant is adjacent to the Sandy Bay School right on the beach. It is owned by a nice couple named Mary and Nestor. I probably ate here 5 times during my one month stay as it was just a short walk down the beach from where we were staying on Sunnyside Rd. I always ordered the chicken baleada ($4) and although the portion was large I just had to clean my plate because the fresh flavors were so good. Mary makes fresh cinnamon rolls on thursday, white bread on monday, and wheat bread on tuesday. They are not open on saturday, but every other day from 7 till 7 you will find Mary in there waiting to cook you up a fresh dish.

This is one of the places you could easily pass by and never know what you missed. The fried chicken and ceviche is great. This is also a good place to try the local dishes such as Baleada.

We were unsure if it was open but heard from locals to try it out. The portions are generous, very friendly staff, and an excellent view of the water. We had a large group but were served quickly. When we went to pay, we just told them what we had it paid our share - easy and quick. It is a family run place and they are so friendly- We will be back.

This restaurant is a hidden gem! We found it in Sandy Bay and the owner/chef and his wife were so nice. The food was excellent. Although it has a limited menu, the food is very flavorful and are good sized portions. Great to eat local!!

We rented a house a few streets down from El Paso and heard great things from several folks. Walked down for dinner one night and were pleasantly surprised! It is a small place, run by a husband and wife next to the international school. The seating is all outside and we were able to watch fruit bats fly around the hummingbird feeders. The menu is small, but the food is very fresh and tastes wonderful. The portions are huge and the prices are cheap. Definitely try the ceviche- the best we have ever had. If you are in the neighborhood, this is one to put on your list- it was a great experience.
