We make sure we come here every year. It is a must after a long walk through town! The wait staff is so nice and the food is great! We always get the guacamole, shrimp, and lobster.

Basically increased 50 - 150 % What are they thinking??? The food has always been mediocre at best. So you want to compete with LaPalapa in price??? Sorry, you have light years to go in the quality of food. And a 50% increase for beer!!!!...More

Although this place seemed a bit unorganized, we enjoyed our meal here and had pretty good service. You sit upstairs so have a nice open view of the beach and ocean. Lots of people watching in this crowded area. Nice authentic Mexican food and drink....More
