Margaritas are traditional. The thing that is special about this restaurant is the Mayan recipe for pumpkin seed salsa, buttery garlic shrimp and the attentive service. Get off the strip people and give this restaurant a try. You will not be disappointed! PS If you...More

Everything was reasonable. Lobsters were not in season. We had a beautiful lunch and plenty of 2/1 drinks and our bill for both including tip was less than $50.

Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
