The portions have shrunk from last year. The quality was very good and the service was good. No air conditioning in the building. A little on the warm side. Pasta with seafood was very delicious.

Restaurant owned by Royal Resorts Group , which specializes is the fresh fish and seafood in addition to a wide variety of choices for all tastes. We have a privileged view of the Nichupte Lagoon and every afternoon we can watch the awesome sunset of the Mexican Caribbean with the crocodiles who visit us each evening.
