We only had a smoothie and a beer. The atmosphere was great and I loved the look of the place! Perfect for the beach! The waitress was not very friendly however and could have made it a much better visit.

If you are in Placencia this is a must stop for a wonderful smoothie. The selections are tremendous. We found ourselves stopping by each time we were in town. In addition the daquari I had was great as well.
