Haliotis has history. The food is good in a traditional way. No baja-med or other fusion cuisine in the menu. Service is good, the owners are always there with a smile. As others mentioned, the restaurant needs updating, but it's not uncomfortable in any way....More

We ate at Haliotis as a party of 8, having come in on a cruise ship. Haliotis is about a mile or so off the tourist strip, so it serves mostly locals. Although not a highly luxurious restaurant, the food is simply excellent. Our party...More
