What an awesome atmosphere! Staff were excellent and food was very good. Located off the beaten path, just a short bus ride out of town. The locals love this family restaurant and so did we!

Very yummy seafood at really reasonable price - lobster for 320 Pesos and regular fish/seafood dish around $140-$170 pesos. We had an issue with the oysters we ordered warm and not fresh, the server took it back no issues. Would recommend!
