Found this place walking along the beach from our resort . Had a great fresh lunch there, (shrimp and grouper ) for two people with beers for $50. So not cheap . But excellent food , great service and a view we will remember for ever

I really enjoyed the entire experience. I liked that I used all my senses while eating my meal. Nothing beats eating fish while watching and listening to crashing waves and a cold beer. Loved the ice cream and Mamajuana shot at the end.
