Great place to watch the sunset and have dinner. The seafood was fresh and delicious. They have a kid friendly menu too. Staff was great as well. I had the stuffed fish, it was yummy and filling.

We are uncomfortably full from how delicious this food was. We couldn't stop. Definitely try the mixed ceviche. My picture is of my entree of octopus and shrimp risotto. Delicious. Drinks are great too.

Restaurant owned by Royal Resorts Group , which specializes is the fresh fish and seafood in addition to a wide variety of choices for all tastes. We have a privileged view of the Nichupte Lagoon and every afternoon we can watch the awesome sunset of the Mexican Caribbean with the crocodiles who visit us each evening.
