Excellent restaurant! Walking distance from Vidanta complex via the beach. The food is delicious, no previous prep meal so the food is fresh and tasty. The owners and staff are kind, extraordinary view.

Frequented by escapees from the massive VIDANTA complex who trek along the beach to this place. Busy (full) when we are there. Waffle was a bit dry and pasty. Friendly service.

Definitely worth the effort to go there. We stayed at Grand Mayan and could only access area where this little gem is by walking down the beach to the marina entry. Well worth the walk. Had breakfast there twice and dinner once. Both were fantastic.

If you’re anywhere near this place...stop in and enjoy some fine cuisine. The setting, outdoors, overlooking the marina is idyllic. An on site artist studio gives a warmth and charm to this cafe. Meals are reasonably priced and food quality is excellent. Breakfast is highlighted...More

It's only open a few nights a week, so check first. We walked in at 5pm and could get a table, but best to call ahead for reservations because it's a small place. 275 pesos ($14 dollars!!) for the best mahi-mahi meal ever. It is...More
