Had a light lunch with an interesting gazpacho and mushroom skewers. Relaxing atmosphere with well prepared food and friendly service.

On the sand by the ocean, a lovely place to watch the sunset and feed the kids. I had the catch of the day 3 nights in a row it was so fresh and delicious. Try the fish tacos! They have a reasonable kids menu and fast service.

My husband and I ate here twice in our 5 night stay. The place is charming as it has a beautiful view of the sunset. It was a calm and relaxing place at the right time.

It can get a little too windy at times in that our salt and pepper shaker got blown away. We're lucky that our food was not served yet. If you like sand, this is the place for you as there is no protection for your feet other than wearing close shoes.

We had a light dinner here on our first night. The service is fast and friendly. I had the Buffalo burger with fries which was done more well, than my requested medium, and my wife had the Margherita pizza. The pizza was kind of bland with sliced tomatoes, thin sauce and light cheese on a flat bread, mediocre at best. Food is pricey, but you can not beat the sand floors and waterfront views!

We meandered into this tropical oasis with nary a notice from the servers.
However, when Valerie finally appeared our prospects brightened. She was a delightful person.
We had the pot stickers with a good tasting ginger sauce.
The loco moco came without rice and no macaroni salad. It had a sorry scrambled egg,
and two pieces of toast with onion strings and french fries, that's a lolo moco.
The lamb burger was covered with a pasty cheese and was overdone after requesting
a medium burger. The fries were OK.
This little food encounter cost over $60 for a simple lunch.
