Beautiful place to watch the sunset and enjoy some very good food. The fish and chicken were very well done. Dessert was just ok. The server was excellent and so friendly! Definitely bring bug repellent as there were all sorts of bugs at dusk.

We loved whiling away our afternoons rotating between playing cards and dipping in the ocean with good cocktails and great wine! Food is delicious and service is the best
