Very tasty food, lots of different choices. The best is the mariachi alive. Just should be not so loud, some people does not like to listen loud music for a long time.

Very authentic Mexican Food as well as fish. Very fresh food. It take a while to get your food but it's because it's not pre-made. Great place to watch people walk on the malecon and watch the sunset.

We just found this place walking along the Malecon, and decided to give it a try. It was the best breakfast we had all week! The food was delicious and we sat overlooking the Malecon with an ocean view. I highly recommend it!

A nice balcony table for sunset and good Margaritas. Service is a little slow, but we were a party of 10. Chiles rellenos very good as were the Flautas. Not munch wine, good fair prices. Fantastic people watching and sunset.
