This restaurant is on the beach with lovely sounds of the waves splashing and a good view of the bay, It's not fancy….. in fact it's pretty "rustico.' We had the red snapper (huachinango) and it was fresh and tasty. The service is fair. Our waitress spoke some English. The margarita's are quite pricy for this kind of restaurant. I think we paid the equivalent of $9.00US for one margarita and it wan't particularly good.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Manzanillo, but we hadn't visited it for two or three years. For lunch today, we thought we would give it another try. Seated at an ocean-side table with a great view of the bay, the prices shocked us. They are much higher than comparable dishes at area restaurants. That might be okay if the food was exceptional, but it was barely passable. So disappointed. We had the mixed seafood cocktail which was essentially a medium size for the price of a large. We also had the red snapper zarandeado; the flavour was a bit off. There are quite a lot of good restaurants in Manzanillo, don't spend your money at this one.

We ate at this restaurant on our last visit three years ago and it was great --- not so this time. The service was very slow and our server was far from friendly! Not even close to a smile. Our meal was just ok and overpriced. We also found the restaurant very unkept to the point of being dirty. Sorry, but there are just too many good restaurants in Manzanillo that we won't be trying this one agai. Oh yes, we were overlooking the parking lot!!

A visited this restaurant since I was told it was great, only I would say it's a "Good" place to eat.
Service is very good, speed is good, taste is ok, price is ok.
Family friendly, plenty of space. But next time will go some place else, nothing to it.
Hope this helps!
