We went here a couple of times and both times food was good BUT the place is crowded and the service not so attentive.
Also I ate the same dish the second time because I liked it so much the first but the sweet plantains that I was so waiting to eat again were basically absent the second time around and got a whole bunch of shredded vegetables instead...so not happy...
The view is great here.

Step 1: Try to grab a table at sunset
Step 2: plan to spend some money on drinks to enjoy the sunset
Step 3:. Dont expect to be blown away by the food.

We came about a half hour before sunset and got a table right by the balcony. Our daughter 5 and 10 got the natural fruit juices. One with water the other with milk and they loved them. My husband and I both got Bravarias Negras and enjoyed our view with tasty chips and salsa we got as an appetizer. We thought the food was just ok and it was pretty cramped in there and we seemed to have several servers dropping by the table.

View:. 5
Food: 3
Service: 4

The plantain and shrimp tower appetizer was one of my favorite meals of the trip. Fresh fish was good, the passionfruit daiquiri was fantastic, and the view of the bay at sunset was spectacular. Highly recommend.

A very popular lunchtime spot, but staff are very proactive in accommodating you. We were seated temporarily at the bar and a nearby table, but the very capable manager moved us to a wonderful table overlooking the bay before we ate a lovely meal. Great choice and great service.
