Excellent food and efficient and friendly staff. High prices in keeping with everything else in El Farallon. Located at the end of the beach it provides the only shade (other than a couple of trees) that is not owned by the mega hotel that dominates El Farallon. Closes promptly at six in the evening.

We just happened along this place. Really great view and vibe. We just lounged with a few beers but the food we saw coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled very, very good. We were staying at the Royal De Cameron and this would have been a real treat from the food at the resort!

Sun, light sand, ocean and tasty food. What do you need more?:) During our stay we visited this place twice and always food was tasty. I recommend fish - fresh, not too much additional things, which allows you to enjoy fish taste. Good drinks, good service. During weekends can be crowded. View is breathtaking.

Restaurant on the beach with lots of tables under umbrellas or the main restaurant canopy. Servers speak English. The menu is fairly diverse with about a dozen items. We didn't try everything of course but a couple of things looked better than what I received. The shrimp apparently were good but the fish was way overcooked and the drinks are... More

This is a very reasonable restaurant on the beach. If driving, it is hard to find, but well worth the hassle. It is on the beach, floor is sand, with tables and chairs. Menu is a chalk board with daily specials. Food is great, service is good, and expect to find very busy, especially on a weekend. We visit often.... More

Cero information about the use of the facilities!!! Charging you for all and everything once in the place! If that is the case charge a cover per person and publish it or just don't allow people with any drinks. A total disaster....,
