without question the best restaurant in the Baja. Chef Carlos is a master chef. His food is inventive and beautifully presented.

Carlito always takes care of us despite the fact we are from Park City ;-). The freshness and creativity in such a small location is amazing. I can't wait to get back!

Very friendly, quiet cool outdoor dining spot, like most things in the Baja, hidden down a dirt road, but well worth it.

I have had the luxury of eating sushi in many of the top restaurants around the world, this restaurant ranks up there with the best. The drinks were just as good but better still with the owner and his wife. They made us feel like we were part... More
