Grouper was tasty, too bad, I should have gotten two! The rest of the family has great meals as well, we sat up on top because we wanted a view of the street. It was not very busy whatsoever, which was odd for it being spring break time and all. The service was above average and a mariachi singer did... More

We happened upon this place and thought we would give a try as our first place to dine on our first nice. The ceviche was so fresh and delicious, melted cheese with nachos and the best homemade salsa I think I have ever had. I ordered the Caribbean lobster grilled with a cream sauce...simply delicious. Truly recommend this very unassuming... More

My wife and I chose this restaurant mostly because it was close to our hotel. Basically we didn't want to walk too far. Yet it was no mistake. The dinner was great. They did kinda con us into a large dinner. We got the "seafood special for two." We really needed to ask what that was. But after a couple... More

Wow, what a great lunch!!! Candido and Angel were Fantastic to us. The ladies had fish tacos and the boys had a bromance with the Mexican Meat Platter. It had chiorzo, ribs, beef and chicken fajitas, cheese quesadilla, guacamole rice and beans. Put a couple margaritas with that and we are full. A great day in Playa....

Our waiter was constantly trying to upsell us on everything we ordered. Gave us things " on the house" that turned up on the bill at the end. We refused to pay for those items and ended up in an unpleasant brew ha ha.

Overpriced, my margarita tasted like mint mouthwash, food was extremely bland and lacked toppings or sides. Nachos were just chips, refried beans, cheese and meat, cheese enchilada was literally just cheese and sauce in a tortilla. Bathrooms had no lights on, no one could find a light switch

I can start out by telling you that I am a foodie and this place has such good food that we ate there two days in a row. Their guacamole is the best we've ever had and they make it for you table-side. They are very generous with their salsas, the drinks were great, all of us loved our food,... More

The staff are very friendly. Accommodated my five year olds extremely picky food requests no problem! We had the surf and turf, and shrimp diablo. Very good. The best was the guacamole made table side and the habanero and onion salsa upon request for something hotter. Ate here five years ago and just as good then as now. Highly recommend... More

First off, this restaurant came as an absolute surprise for us. We didn't have many culinary expectations for the restaurants we were walking past on this busy street. We were absolutely surprised by our experience here! We got the seafood platter and the Mexican platter… And they really were excellent. We've been traveling up and down the Mexican Riviera coast...
