I tried various foods each day - for breakfast, I tried the huevos rancheros, tipico, herbed crepe a la provencal, and fried plantains. I enjoyed ALL of them, they were delicious and were more of a brunch that kept me full until dinner. I tried all... More

Small restaurant right on the beach offering interesting menu and attentive, warm service. The menu has diverse food options, fresh fish, sushi, and many interesting choices. Take a look on their website to see great options . Service is exceptional with lovely, friendly staff.

The food here is amazing, almost as much as the view. Very friendly staff who are willing to work with dietary restrictions. Both my partner and I are vegan and gluten-free and there was no shortage of options. We even loved things so much we would order some of the dishes several times throughout our stay at the resort. We... More

Some of our favourite dishes were the French toast and banana pancakes and for dinner the chicken skewers and the catch of the day!! For the dessert we recommend the banana crepes. The service was really slow because... More

We had one of our team members leave suddenly and therefore we were short staffed for a while. We have very high expectations... More

Great meals! I especially liked the banana pancakes at breakfast and the seared tuna for the evening meal. Dinner was available until 9:00, so we never had to rush back for dinner. The staff were quite personable and helpful, and truly understood their craft. It was such a treat to be offered such delicious meals in such a setting! We... More
