Maybe the servers are only interested in a big orders. My wife and I ordered beers and some to eat together. It took time too long to order.

We came here for dinner and loved it. The food was delicious and well priced. The staff were friendly and the views were great.

Another of the waterfront restaurants that line the small city blocks. The best item on the menu is the white lake bass dish which our fish lover enjoyed to the point of leaving nothing but bones on his plate. The other protein menu items are good too but the sides were nothing to write home about. A nice meal and... More

Trip Advisor had this Resturant rated in the top 5-8 depending. One listing it was #1. WRONG! Based on my experience it's a disaster. Yes, it's across the water, you can see the activities of the island and you are attracted to its #1 looking appearance. We sat down ordered drinks as we reviewed the menu. The Margaritas... it was... More

We were looking for a place to have a dinner but when we saw that the smoothies are not made by them but ordered from Bö cafe, we decided to eat somewhere else. Moreover, smoothies are not from fresh fruits but from frozen ones

A lovely place to eat with a great view of the lake and in the shade. We had breakfast here and thought the service was outstanding. Whatever your order, an oatmeal porridge and cookie are served as a starter. The staff are friendly and helpful. You can access it from the road above or the waterfront.

The food was very avarage, the prices were a bit high for the avarage food you get. Don't order the ceviche, it does not have any shrimp.

There is covered outdoor seating overlooking the lake and tables further in on the first floor. We dined with a large group and hey set us up on the second floor where it was quiet. The menu includes Italian pastas, pizzas and local foods. Everyone was happy with their meal. I ordered Chile Rellano, a favorite of mine. This was... More

I just recently gave Captain Tortuga a very favourable review, especially recommending the Chile Relleno. My first Chile Relleno was so good, I returned the next day for another one. This time it tasted off and I immediately developed diarrhea for a week! I guess the message is that this restaurant can be good or bad depending on who is... More

Really enjoyed our pizza and chile relleno may be the best I've ever had! Great location on the malecon.
