Loved my spaghetti yuca with seafood sauce. Companions ordered excellent pizzas. Lasagna with white sauce salmon was very good. Our Ramón Bilbao Crianza 2015 was $40 and very good. Nice decor and very good service. Extensive, varied men. Well worth a visit for dinner.

The resturant is located on the beach in the middle of town. The meat lasagna had no flavor and the pasta with bacon was average. The bread they put on the table and garlic sauce was very good. Service was average.
