Ahhh the garlic fries are the most amazing hot chips I've ever had! And the Cubana sandwich! Such an awesome bar and the food is always made fresh, we've been there a million times this trip and can't wait to go back!

Great drinks in this funky little space. The girls are great and always friendly. Right of the beach across from the Eskimo.
