“Good food, but pricey”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We ordered the ribeye (the special that night) and it was pretty expensive. Overall, the food was good but we were a little shocked at the total bill. However, the service was great, the staff was friendly and we loved the atmosphere (tables were lit by candles for dinner). A fun place to eat.

“Best place for sunset”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We went here almost every night for sunset drinks. Great service and drinks. Reasonable price. Never tried the food, 100% recommend going for a drink.

“great view”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Food just ok. View is great. They do have specials and the place was busy. Seems like a popular place for dinner. Unfortunately the weather was not conducive for a sunset but this would be a great spot to view it from.

“Best place in Manual Antonio”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Family of four dined on an off season evening. We had a salad, a blue cheese burger, a chicken dish, and an egg plant dish. All were excellent and reasonably priced. Chico was a great waiter and took good care of us. We did notice a 10% tip was added to our check.

“Awesome View and Great Food!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Our family of 4 ate here for dinner and loved it! We had sushi, chicken nacos, chorizo, and chicken and it was all very good! The hamburgers looked delicious--they were huge! Fri night they have a rib special that sounded great also. Staff was friendly and service was excellent! Thinking about going back for one of those hamburgers--we missed the 2 for 1 hamburger special on Tues nights. The view can't be beat!!!
