The place has lots of dogs around, which is fine but they all peed on the curtain while I was there, one after the other! A bit off-putting! The food was ok, but it took about 45 minutes to arrive and got bitten by mosquitos while waiting, so take repellent with you. The cherry on the cake was being overcharged, with a price that was different to that on the menu, so if you go there, check your bill! I won't be going back, plenty of nicer options in playa samara!

We love the nachos here, and the half price sushi night is a fantastic bargain. The mojitos are excellent and the beers are cold. Love the ebach chairs and umbrellas that were recently added. We are here nearly every day when in Samara!

Great beach location! I had the fish sandwich and my husband had sushi. While my sandwich was good, the sushi was spectacular!

Nice place for lunch and drinks right on the beach with trees around for shade. Nicely casual and relaxed. The only issue I had was the open sewerage near to the restaurant. When all said and done this place is one of the better American owned businesses and certainly a lot better than Lo Que Hay where quality of food is very poor.

There are many great restaurants in Samara, but this is my favorite. It has everything it takes for a great dining experience - good food, great waiters, terrific ambiance... The vela shrimp and sushi are my favorites, but everything is very, very good. And during happy hour (which lasts til 7 p.m.), they have 2 for 1 drinks, including what I decided was the best mojito in Samara.

Thank EnoughBlue
