Great food and drinks. Backpacker style but absolutely delicious. I tried the Hamburger as I was not in the mood of fish and it was fantastic. The pricing for a national beer and other drinks is very fair.

What a great place. Had lunch after a day at the beach. Owners were great. Shared a glass of 23 yr old rum with the freshest Ceviche. Also get the smashed fried plantains with the owners grandmothers peanut sauce recipe!
