Walked up the beach and stopped to get some mixed drinks. Nice atmosphere and drinks were great. We thoroughly enjoyed the view from the bar. We will be back.

Great food. Strong mixed drinks. Specialty drinks are very good as well. Wonderful atmosphere. We go every time we are at the island, never disappointed. Ceviche is to die for!! Great value. Be within walking distance if you plan to have more than one drink :)
