Looking for another red snapper location. This was great spot. Asked for a larger snapper and they had an off menu larger snapper. It was perfect. The service was excellent. They paid more attention to us than most other CR restaurants.

Quaint restaurant near the beach with good vibes and amazing food. For lunch I had a mariscos special and for dinner I had the whole red snapper. Very fresh sea food, excellently prepared!

My husband and I had lunch here. It was fantastic. I had the Mahi Mahi fish platter. Way more than enough! I couldn't eat it all! Everything was fresh and tasty and the service was super friendly. We'll be back!
