This close to the ocean is not the place to experiment with cooking fish. You need to know how to do it. We had grouper two ways. Mine was with cream and capers and dried out ; wife’s version cooked better but with solid garlic...More

The pizza here was affordable. Good mid priced restaurant for an exclusive island. Liked the furniture and set up in the restaurant which gave a nice view out onto the greenery near the hotel. The hotel also has some charm with the jokes and sayings...More

Nice fish with a great view of tropical gardens, at nearly half the price of "Sal y Pimienta", where we decided not to eat and headed back to Gerald's again. The dining room is informal but well suited to the beach environment where you can...More

Gerald has a special listed on a blackboard in addition to the menu. They just reopened yesterday and we had lunch today. Fish of the day and a nice salad--both good. Place is very basic. A roof is overhead but you are outdoors.

Wouldn't recommend this place. After waiting for way more than half an hour we've got pasta and hamburger which were OK, seviche which was very very average and fish which was horrible (one should try hard to cook it so bad). Quite expensive for what...More

I went there one evening with friends. The food is expensive but good. The cocktails were really bad, and we paid 9 dollar for each of them !! Really crazy, don't try it.. (they put salt in the caipirinha ...). The breakfast is amazing !

I have had a lot of bad pizzas over the years. It's kind of a part of the paradox when you eat it in every country you go. But for whatever reason - maybe the extreme humidity or the salt air and domestic water -...More
