We have visited this restaurant on a rainy afternoon. It was packed with locals and tourists and the food was amazing! Highly recommendable!

A friend had recommended this, but I'm guessing he ate something better. The beach here is nice. The food not so much. If you measure this in relation to the other restaurants on this island, you could potentially give this a higher rating. Not feeling quite that gracious at this point, and that's comparing it to the not-always-so-special cuisine of... More

Great food at the beach, you will have your meal looking at the caribbean sea. Book in advance to make sure you get a table outdoor. Highly recommend the tuna with coconut rice and vegetables. :)

Stumbled across this place while exploring San Andres, saw that it was busy which is always a good sign. I was served quite promptly ! Got my Margarita Limon Frape shortly after ordering but was awhile before the Tuna Arrived. It was well worth the wait! Cooked perfectly to order and served on a bed of stir fried vegetables. Endulged... More

Coming from a chef, if you have been to the same restaurant 3 times out of the 5 days that you're there, it says something! The food was fresh, tasteful & delicious to say the least. From the lobster, to the seared tuna and the fried rice, it is definitely worth the wait (45 mins minimum) and the price. The... More

We ordered two rice dishes, with shrimp, and fish, and both were extremely bland, so quite disappointing, especially considering that they are not cheap at around 40k per plate. The mango juice was excellent. It's a busy place, on the beach, so kitchen service is very slow. Total cost for two main, side of fries, one juice and one water... More
