The menu is as small as the choices. The service is slow and inattentive. When we claimed that the portions are to small, they brought additional fries. And charged 12$ for that. For a small meal with drinks for two people the bill was 48$....More

This sustainable tilapia farm not only offers tasty food, but also the unique experience of being able to see where your food is grown and harvested. Great experience and lunch for our whole family!

A great place to go - swim in the waterfall, then go to the restaurant to catch your own tilapia. The kids had a blast. Then follow up with a lovely lunch. Make sure you have the yucca 'fries' as an appetizer. The fish is...More
