Appetizer were acceptable, but when it came to principle plate it was the worst. I order salmorejo de jueyes and it was very salty and it taste like rotten tomatoes. The sauce was too spicy also. Even though food was awful they were very kind and didn't charge for the dish.

Ate lunch, 3/19/2017. Had 1/2 pound Snow Crab. Waitress recommended as their best & what most customers order. Two clusters, VERY LITTLE meat & VERY salty. By far, WORST I have ever had! I love & know Snow Crab. I can buy much better at a GROCERY store in Atlanta. Husband had what were called tacos but more like empanadas... More

The food was a little pricey, it was very tasty. I have everything we've had that evening, we could not complain. We had visited the... More

The atmosphere has little to be desired. It is rustic with some sea decorations and uncomfortable seats. I found the menu offerings to be rather limited and expensive. If people really like their crab legs...well, I guess this is the place to come to, but don't expect much else. I ordered a fish fillet which was good, but I wasn't... More

The food was very good but it is not easy getting into this little restaurant . The parking is very small and a lot of people go here to eat so just do not be in a hurry but it's worth the wait.

This was our first time at this restaurant. we had fried calamari for starters and it was the taste this most delicious fried calamari that I have ever had. You could eat it alone but they came with some guava sauce to dip them in and that made them even more delicious. My wife is a freak about crab legs... More
