It's like a hole in the wall, nothing fancy about the place. Right on the beach, great view. Food is delicious but service is sloooow so if you're hungry, not a place to go. Took them roughly 45 minutes for the entree to get served. Not a place in the summer (during the day) it's so warm and humid!

Great service, friendly staff, excellent food, got the fresh tuna, went swimming before, right by the beach, close to Flamingo Beach

On the beach, live music, attentive staff, fresh fish. But it was the most expensive meal on our entire trip and we had similar experiences at other restaurants for half the price.

Extremely over priced for what you get. Is the view nice? Yes - but there are a million restaurants with views just as nice. We new we made a mistake when the tourist vans started rolling in one after another. All the local guides recommend this place because they are incentivized to do so. If you like bland pricey food and don't mind being accosted by street vendors while trying to eat - come here. Otherwise do yourself a favor and head over to Tortugas where everything is fresh or head over to Flamingo and go to Coco Loco - much better choices and better prices. FYI - tried to use credit cards and were told that the phone lines were down and we had to pay cash - we told them we would wait until the phones were working - later learned that this is a scheme used to manipulate the exchange rate that they cannot do when running a charge through your credit card company. Avoid this place!

We had this restaurant recommended to us by the concierge's service associated with our house rental and this restaurant did not disappoint. The food was absolutely fabulous - probably some of the best shrimp I've ever had. We were smack dab on the beach and able to dig our toes into the sand. The service was very good and what one would expect in an upscale restaurant, which can be a little surprising when you realize you are digging your toes into the sand as they bring the water bowl with flowers to wash your hands.
Oh the salad is also very good with fresh hearts of palm.
