Don't know what the fuss is about here, much better places to go in playa Santiago. Service is patchy, place itself a dirty shack with ancient tables and chairs. Food nothing to write home about. It's location is the only good thing about it.

You might well wait for a table as we did both times we lunched here this week, but then relax in the almost-open beside the pebble beach. If you listen and follow the fish specials you won't go wrong. They change daily and run out...More

Views over sea. Quick service. Some wait staff friendly!!! Wine was cheap and cold. Sorrano ham was excellent. Portions of chips are very large. Laid back. Good for easy lunch.
