I was very surprised by the positive reviews and by the fact that my guide book recommended this place. We were a group of 9 (7 from Guatemala) and we were looking forward to eat the famous dish, tapado. Not only the service was bad (they got wrong our order a few times with no apology), but what a disappointment... More

They bring you the wrong things and expect you to pay the stuff you didn't order. No need to say more

Choices are very limited in Livingston and the Tripadvisor reviews over all didn’t fill me with much confidence however I’m glad we went here as the staff were lovely and the food was pretty good. The service was badly slow but thankfully it was a nice place to sit and watch live go by, though if you don’t like dogs... More

Me and my friends came there pretty late, when the restaurant was totally empty. They said that they only serve fish and shrimps since they ran out of the rest. 3 of the dishes we ordered arrived rather late, but the last dish came out after we all had finished eating. The worst thing that has happened is that instead... More

First of all, I'm still confused as to why this place has 4.5 average rating. Maybe it's the few souls who have been desperately searching for a vegan burger in Livingston...but from what I overheard from another table, the vegan burger is definitely not vegan. We got curry. It was fine, fine enough I wouldn't have complained, except the service... More

A really pleasant little place on the main road up the hill in Livingston. The menu wasn't huge, but what they offered was good, we had delicious Thai curry and local fish. The service was friendly and it was a lovely spot for a bit of people watching.

In comparison to others this restaurant was very good. Fish tacos are great and so was the frsh grilled fish. Prices are really reasonable and the ambiance is laid back and friendly.

Our dinner here was great - we ordered the chicken curry and it was very good - we could have done with it being a bit spicer, but we love very spicy food. It was a good level of spicy for most people, I think. The staff were very friendly, and spoke a bit of English, helpful as we speak... More

Since we were in Livingston, we knew that we had to try tapado - the traditional garifuna soup. My tapado was very good, but not with a lot of seafood in it. The flavor was good good, but for the price, i would have liked more seafood. Other folks enjoyed their meals at this good looking restaurant.

Nice dinner of fish tacos, only 25Q. Took about an hour for food though so if you’re super hungry you might have to wait a while. We had margaritas in happy hour, for some reason they had some left over plastic from the ice in them, not the best.
