Tried to eat here Christmas day and found it was just patio style with concrete floor. Walked away as it was way too cold to sit and eat.

We are sorry to hear you couldn't eat at the restaurant. Very soon we are going to celebrate the opening of our new restaurant in front of the marina and Tetakawi hill. We hope you can visit us again to have a nice brunch. More

My family visited here for dinner while the restaurant was being renovated. We were told we arrived just before a party of 40, and the staff appeared a bit 'put off' that we came in. Our service was extremely slow and our server was not very attentive to our simplest of needs; I.e. Silverware, drinks, etc. Lobster dish was good... More

We go to the Embarcadero regularly. It is consistent as to good quality, service and outstanding view of the Marina and TetaKawi twin peaks. The Sunday and holiday brunch are also outstanding! A buffet breakfast is served every day with eggs and omelets to order, but the holiday version has more variety. Lunch and dinner are also good.

We used to play cards there every week...I could order the same thing every week and it was never the same. Prices are high for what you get, but to be able to sit on the Embarcadero with a view of the marina and Tetakawi makes it worth it. Sunday brunch hives you more to choose from, but again quite...

We have eaten here a number of times and the food has always been of a good standard. The setting within the Marina area is quite pretty, especially at sunset. Try the Eggs Benedict on Sunday mornings. Service is good and the menu selection varied. The seafood is excellent and nicely presented. Other 'Gringo' items are available such as Club... More

Be Warned. The restaurant 'plays' tourists as 'marks'. Ok food and service until tip time, when the cashier tried to humiliate me by her saying my 20% tip wasn't enough. Further, their unrequested troubador wanted 400 pesos for singing a few unrequested songs. After my daughter got the nearby hotel security, the singer settled for $5. Bad experience. Never again....

Nice Sunday buffet. Get there early as the families and crowds start to show up around 10am - 1pm. Food is ok but the juices and fruits are all fresh! Sit outside if the temperature is nice. Watch all the boats and yachts in the San Carlos Marina

This is a great place to sit and enjoy dinner in the evenings, to the sound of the boats rocking in their docks. A cat goes from table to table looking for scraps, but isn't aggressive. Service was attentive and the food was excellent. Menu is in Spanglish so it's easy to read. Breakfast was another story. Slow, our juice... More
