“4 lunches in a row...”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

We ate at almost every place in Esparanza during our 7 day stay and kept coming back here for lunch after the beach daily. Great blackened kingfish special with lobster risotto, lobster bisque, Caribbean chicken with rice and beans. My son said it was the best burger on the island. My parents loved the fresh fish & chips. Great service. Laid back place - we were still covered with sand each day.

“Had a great meal”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Had dinner here one night and was best so far. It is right on the road but we sat in the middle of dinning room. We started with the ceviche and spring rolls both were very good. I had the fish tacos and thought they were put together well but lacked a lot of flavor. Wife had the slider trio and she was pleased. Daughter had the fish and chips and said was very tasty. Wife had a rum punch and I had a Medalla light beer. Service was above most. We will be back.

“Soo yummy”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Really great. We had four people, and to start out we split the ceviche and the spring rolls. Those alone almost filled us up. Very tasty, and a good quality fish. I can't speak for the others food, but they all raved about theirs. I got the Cuban sandwich which was to die for. I could only eat half before nearly giving up. The mind and taste buds were willing, but my stomach space failed me. I took the other half home and discovered that it was still amazing after a day in the refrigerator. The waiter was very kind and talkative ( though don't go on the bio-bay tour he convinced us to go on, read my review on that and you'll know why). Overall, great setting, food, and people. 10/10 would eat again.

“Great salad, wrap and fries”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

We went for lunch here, and it was very good! The server was nice, and we had a great salad topped with snapper and a mahi wrap. While neither were extremely special, we enjoyed both as well as our overall experience. Our server (and her mohawk) was nice and helpful. Oh and the French fries were Awesome!! Everything was homemade, down to the hot sauce and the ketchup, which was impressive and delicious.

“Late night service”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We arrived technically after they had stopped serving dinner but the bar tender went out of his way to make sure we got something to eat. We had nachos supreme and it was very good! Drinks were pretty good too!
