We had lunch there. A simple spaghetti we just tomato sauce, but they managed to make it taste as plastic. And on top of that they charged 14 USD for it.

We had a ton of cocktails in that beautiful beach. Do try the ceviche there, it's the best in the entire island!

I loved this place. The fish is the dish to get. It was fabulously fresh with a fantastic array of side dishes. It's a good place doe families and for couples. Don't miss this one!
