“Spanish food right on the sand”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Tapas style menu with lots of options. They also make a great paella. You can sit at a table that is literally on the sand or in the dining room, but either way you are right on the water and it beautiful.

“not the typical beach front joint - certainly not a joint”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

A true change of pace from the myriad of beach restaurants that serve fish and local Nica dishes. Paella choices are more than enough to keep you occupied; their steak is excellent. I have spent several evenings there with family (inlcuding younger 0,2,4,6 yo) grandchildren with fine service each time and a pleasant accommodation to the children.

“excellent choice along the beach”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

Tried this place on a friday night, it was very busy but the service was great! It's an airy, clean comfortable restaurant with really nice staff. I ordered the grilled chicken with mushroom sauce and it was delicious! Most mushroom sauces down here taste like mushroom soup from a can but this one was definetly better. They offer, mashed potatoes, grilled or french fries a nice change from rice.Overall very tasty, Although a bit pricier than some other places, I will definetly go back.

“Their favorite word is "NO"”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

What would you like to drink? A fruit punch I say. No, we don't have that. (It was on the menu)

I would like to order xxx steak, I say. No, we don't have that. (It was on the menu).

My BF asked to order another item on the menu. No, was the usual reply, we don't have that.

As we had a table next to the beach and it was very very windy, I ask to have the shades lowered so the amount of sand that was being blown onto us would be minimized. I was told that the wind is NOT their fault, the waiter said with an attitude! Of course not, I say - just lower the blinds to help protect us from the windy sand.

It went down hill from there.... The food was NOT good at all and it is way overpriced. I suggesting saving your money by going to a less expensive place where the wait staff is more customer service oriented and where the food is worth the long wait.
