A palapa style restaurant with noisy TV and lots of tables. Just excellent very fresh seafood. We live in this town and eat here a lot. Recommend shrimp and octopus cocktails, aguachile and whole fried fish.

Very popular place with the locals. Great variety of sea food and excellent prices. The menu is daily large and it is a good idea to ask the waiter to explain the difference between dishes that almost have the same description but have different condiments. We also enjoyed the desserts.

I recommend the "Shrimp Party" - it literally is... More

This place was that very first place we stopped at when we arrived in Cabo. After getting up early, traveling we were all hungry. I got the "catch of the day" with garlic sauce, mashed potatoes and veggies. It was absolutely amazing. Highly recommend this place.

Popular for locals and tourists alike. Reasonably priced tasty seafood. Shrimp lovers, try their kilo of peel and eat shrimp, yum yum.

What a great local hangout! Busy casual atmosphere with a great vibe and great staff to go with it. Seafood dominates the menu but other offerings looked good as well. The service was fast and friendly with nice quantities of food. Try a cup of their delicious seafood stock/broth -it's to die for!
