Definitely the best place to eat in the entire island . Try the caldoso de pulpo and shrimp ceviche! <3

The food was really good and the waiters were doing the best they could. But the manager and supervisor were not helpful at all. The manager talked badly to the waiters in front of everybody. If it wasn't for the nasty attitude of the manager I would of enjoyed the meal much more.

This place was highly recommended by the people around in the island, but I think the service was bad, the food flavor was weak, bu the prices were really high, I mean for the service and food quality you get. Beautiful spot.

The restaurant is at the southern point of Playa San Luis. It is a kick back beach restaurant that is perfect for lunch, dinner, or just cocktails. San Luis is biggest sandy beach on the island. Plan an afternoon around lunch here.

I visited with my family, we weren't greeted by anyone and then got told we could sit at the table we were at, staff were unfriendly and rude though out the whole service. Had to wait ages for food and drinks. Food was okay nothing special you defiantly don't get what you paid for as the prices were steep. The... More

We arrived on a very busy Saturday and got a table inside. Asked the owner if we could geta table outside she said we had to wait. After 20 minutes of waiting finally they took our order.

We visited twice and enjoyed some gorgeous calamari, oriental fish, prawns... whilst sitting with our bare feet in the sand and enjoying the views of the ocean. Meals come with sides of delicious coconut rice and yucca fries (though the second lady who served us didn't crack a smile and told us we could only have banana fritters!). Average price... More
