Overall it wasn't too bad. The view wasn't the greatest but you could see the water, not the beach. The ceviche was what we got and also their boss bloody mary was pretty good, but a tad over priced I felt. But it wasn't bad if you are in the mood for Mexican.

This was highly recommended to us by some locals so we went here for lunch. My husband had the shrimp cocktail and fish tacos, and really enjoyed them. My friend and I both had a beef and a cheese enchilada. I thought they were ok, but nothing special. We also had the guacamole especial which was just mashed avocado. It... More

If you are in from out of town you need to check them out. Great for breakfast too! Try the chilaquiles and a... More

Everyone that works here in in a great mood. The margaritas are perfect. The tacos at happy hour are a steal- get the calamari.

We came here for Breakfast as this place had good reviews. We thought it was shut as the chairs were up in the bar but the door was open so we wandered in and they were just getting going. We sat in the patio overlooking the sea which is always better. I had the beef machacca and whilst it is... More

Fun place to grab lunch, HH or dinner. Often crowded, loud and fun. Sit in the window over the side walk and watch it all. Good food and nice servers. Have a beer or margarita and enjoy !

Very popular, but average in my opinion. Pay for chips and salsa, crowded and mediocre food. I have eaton here multiple times and am always underwhelmed by both the service and food quality. I feel like they rely on their past popularity to gouge you with the drink prices and uninspired food. Service is also lacking with a minimalist attitude.
