Absolutely FAB!! This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend in Cabo. She's a local & told us it's the best seafood. She was right!

Location was perfect & great to get out of the scorching sun. We first ordered margaritas and they were the BEST we've had since arriving in Mexico (fresh squeezed line instead of the package sweet mix you seem to get everywhere else). Then we started with ceviche. OMG! Yummy! Followed by the best guacamole. Then I had the camarones (shrimp) skewers and my husband had a garlic grilled sea bass fillet. ALL AMAZING!!

Fantastic service, location and food. We'll definitely return!!

I did a review about the beach with the restaurant included. This is the Restaurant where you can nibble on tasty seafood, be serenaded by a Mariachi Band and all the while watch the sunset out on the ocean fade away with your toes in the sand!

What a great spot on the beach. Relaxed, not formal. Open restaurant with large thatched roof and lighting. Enjoy sand on your feet while you enjoy incredibly good food. Even something as simple as chips and salsa tasted wonderful. Homemade, elegant, light. We were a group of 8 and the item we ordered more of was the ceviche. Incredible. I don't think anyone left anything on their plate. The restaurant is right on the water where anyone can get up and get thrum feet writ if they wanted. Tranquil, relaxed and just a perfect place to enjoy a great meal without getting dressed up.

The entire restaurant is clad in a grass roof, shading every table from the sizzling LaPaz sun so right away we were comfortable. The handsome waiters have been taking care of guests here for a long time and their ability to switch from Spanish to English was seamless. They are happy to "splain" you any dish you wish, every description was mouthwatering. We took the recommendation of our hosts and enjoyed delicious shrimp. A dock is right there so when the kids became bored off they went to run the length of it and jump into the azure liquid. Fantastic! It even came with a wandering jewelry salesman and a floating ice cream guy. We loved it.

Described as the best by the folks who own the condo we rented, we thought it warranted a visit. It is located just north of the ferry port. We ordered the garlic fish, the fish Veracruz and the octopus. Any one of these dishes would be the high point of a gourmet menu in the States. The fish dishes were perfectly cooked. The Veracruz sauce was to die for. The octopus was beautifully seasoned.

The restaurant sits on the beach with a nice view. Decor is typical Mexican beach restaurant. Go for the food, not the ambience.

Service is excellent.

Getting there requires a car or a taxi ride. It is too far from downtown La Paz to walk.
