Great food, great outdoor courtyard with live music. I think this was our favorite place. Great grilled food and if you are tired of seafood, there are other choices. Good service.

Staff was great. Food portions were generous and tasty. Fresh fish and veggies were grilled on a large outdoor grill and there was a lady making tortillas nearby - great interactive experience.

This place was so cute and very close to our hotel. The food was good and drinks were even better. They take credit cards.

Watch them grill your fish or meat in their large outdoor grill. Great specialty drinks (including non-alcoholic fruit concoctions), great service. Delicious food. A real favorite with the local crowd - and for good reason.

We had a couple meals here. They have a nice selection. My husband likes whole fish. They picked out a bass and showed it to him for size and price. It was delicious. We had some appetizers and drinks as well.
