I was excited about visiting after hearing about it from a friend. He was right about the setting, the view is great. But that's about where it ends. The food was mediocre, which would be excusable if the prices were in line with the quality....More

We visited the restaurant in April 2017 after a full day of hiking in the National Park and were super excited about the food, the location and the great service. The fish we ordered tasted fantastic and also the Pina Colada afterwards was very yummy!...More

We loved this place. Everything we ordered was excellent. The ceviche was more like sashimi but it was really good. The wine list is somewhat short buy good enough. We had a lovely experience and an amazing meal.

Hi! I wanted to make reservations for 10/28 with a beach view. I am a vegetarian but I do eat dairy and eggs. Does your menu include options? I am always good with cheese pizza. Oh we would like to dine while still light out for the view. What time do you suggest? Thanks! : )
