“Great beach front spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

A wonderful spot to relax after surfing at Choco's - be there for happy hour and order a plate or two of patacones with dip. Get great Samara advice and suggestions from Hector. Then sit back and sip, and do some people watching. Try to imagine shoveling snow back home! hahahahahaha -pura vida

“One of our favorite restaurants on the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

Super place to sit in the chairs closest to the beach and watch the beach crowd and surfers. The restaurant's Tapas were our favorite meals. Their prices are very reasonable and each Tapas is enough for an excellent lunch. They have many different Tapas and we have tried them all, but loved their pork ribs the best. Their staff is excellent! and speak excellent English, or Spanish, as you prefer. Good disco also, some evenings. Also a full menu of excellent fine cuisine, for more formal dining in the upper section of the restaurant. Not to be missed if you are in Samara!!

Coldest beer in town people! That is what matters most, and really smiley friendly service when you have had a hard day lazing on the beach.
