Julio and Rita had a very full restaurant but managed to put out a wonderful meal, as usual. Music was thankfully low volume and the food ... delicious! We're enjoyed many many meals here and have been wowed with the presentation, flavors and service. A great dining experience every time!

We had a great meal here in November 2016. The chef is excellent and very creative in his presentations. The style is "Mexi-Med" with great seafood and pastas. I went with the set three course menu and loved it all. The had really fresh tuna and Mahi-mahi the night we were there and all four of us loved our meals.

We were a party of 10 and ventured off the hotel strip to the town of La Cruz. The restaurant was tastefully decorated and there was plenty of menu choices. Great food and presentation. A fun outing for all.

I have tired this restaurant two times and it is good but not great. Meat tough, prices high and it is hot in the summer to sit inside. I will try it again if friends as me to go as it good but I wish it was better like some other choices near me.
