Great spot to chill out in the beach and get drinks at the beach bar. Then go relax at the restaurant and have dinner. Beautiful spot. Not cheep but good drinks fresh ingredients. Vary calm spot for swimming with nice sandy beach

The food wasn't as amazing as the beach. We had breakfast. Eggs were way under cooked,portions were small. However the restaurant was very clean and inviting. Their beach across the street is a perfect place to chill out and Take a nap in a hammock.

I love the way you can order lunch on the beach! We ordered fried fish and another fish dish and they were both excellent. They were also large portions. My husband helped consuming my food.

We are at this restaurant and lived it. They had recently updated their cocktail menu and we loved their very fresh " dark and stormy" cocktail. Their food was fabulous. We have had a few bad meals on this island but this restaurant was very good. We ordered the beef fajita- best meal yet on this island. It did not... More

Non residents pay $10 per head. This allows you to use the loungers and gazebos on the great beach and recoup your $10 through running up a tab at the hotel's bar and restaurant. bargain!

The restaurant is open air - no inside seating and offers a somewhat limited menu - the same day after day! The service is inexplicably slow. There appear to be plenty of staff but the way in which they must hand write orders - separately for food and beverage and then have customers review and sign is so cumbersome it's... More

Foo: is OK. Just average Corn Island stuff with desultory wait staff. Beach location is the major attraction.

Stayed at the hotel (see other review) ate in the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a few days. The included breakfast was good. We stuck with traditional Nica and it was good. Perhaps two slices of bread would have been better but we were too lazy to ask for more. Lunch - hubby recommends the fish soup as... More

First feel of this restaurant is the staff is not overly friendly. Presentation, taste, freshness earn it three stars but lost two stars for okay service, small potions and over priced meal, almost double to that of the rest of the island.

Thank Greg S
