Friendly fast service, English speaking staff, very clean. The peporioni pizza was as good as good as in Italy and you can't beat the view, directly on the Pacific ocean. Lunch for two was $9.00.

The food was delicious - we had pizza and tacos, both had lots of flavor and the portion sizes were generous. Service was quick and professional and the atmosphere is wonderful. Amazing setting with ocean right in front of you.

We saw so many signs for this restaurant, on the side of the road, we had to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. We even made a second trip. The pina coladas were also very good. Great scenery on the beach.

Hi, thanks so much for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed yourself. Although I see you've marked it as a "1 Star" experience even though you seem to have had a great time. Was there possibly a mistake?"
