We stopped several times over the course of a week and would have the ceviche (delicious), other assorted appetizers, and cocktails at the bar with Jose the bartender who delivered great service! He spoke great English for our broken Spanglish! Easy going stop, with great service.

Pleasant atmosphere and pleasant staff with good service but the bottom line is the food was totally hit and miss. 3 of us ordered dinner, mixed seafood plate was very good, sea bass was ok, whole snapper was ok. Desserts were actually very, very good. I don't regret going but I would not return.

Went because of the location. We were a little apprehensive because of other reviews but decided to try it. Very glad we did. Mahi was excellent (blackened is very spicy), Jumbo breaded shrimp was delectable!!, chicken cordon bleu was awesome, fish and chips great! Service is as you would expect with the culture... Sit back and relax! Drinks... Mostly good. Mai Tai was great! Could improve on Margarita's, but still similar to other restaurants! All in all would definitely recommend!
