Had a lovely time last evening in this off the beaten path restaurant. Tequila lime shrimp was excellent...fresh baked bread was excellent. Side veggies not so much, but didn't take away from great food experience. Service was top-notch. Atmosphere in the inner courtyard was lovely.

Wasn't sure what to expect when we walked into this restaurant, but were glad we did. Staying at Paradise Village Resort, this restaurant was within walking distance (a long walk) and you can feel safe walking the street.

We walked by a booth with a guy who gave us a coupon for a discount at this restaurant as long as we paid cash, so look for that.

Our group of 8 was seated in the "outdoor" section. We were covered with the side "wall" being curtains that were tied back so we could see outside (the view isn't anything spectacular.) The atmosphere is nice and there was an individual playing guitar and singing.

They had 2 specials of which one was jumbo shrimp. It was excellent! Portion size was more than enough. None of us could handle dessert afterwards although a few did have some after dinner drinks. Service was excellent.

Would definitely eat here again.

Almost anything on the menu that has shrimp is good. Service was good as was the live entertainment.

This was the first time we were at a restaurant here where we were not welcomed with open arms! The hostess barely said a word to us! We had three different servers in a 90 minute stay and it wasn't even busy. Catch of the day was very small and unimpressive. Red snapper made to order but expensive for the size fish. Asked to see the menu three times during the meal so we could order other specialty drinks. Came at the very end of the meal.
Music was nice.
