“Interesting restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

Had a great visit to this place, it is perched on a hill over looking jobos/montones beaches... saw whales breaching! Service is a bit slow and live music was loud but very good! kids enjoyed dancing and we had a selection of tapas. Would return, just don't be in a rush... you are on island time! The view is spectacular... very tropical surroundings with a panoramic view of the ocean.

“Great local food, service and a view to die for!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

Friendly owner Tito and his father make you feel at home. The cliff top bar and resturant has an unparalled view of the famed beaches of Isabela and the gorgeous turqouise waters in thier various jewel tones are best viewed at sunset. we went thier last night with a gorgeous full moon illuminating the ocean. Dinner of local cusine (delicious chicken cutlet, rice and beans and salad) were ordered and served very quickly and were hot and very good! Prices are reasonable and the bar staff is friendly and knowledgable. A bar top juke box and both local and pop music. Stop in for a drink at sunset and have some appetizers as you relax and take in the view!

“There are better restaurants in the area”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

The view just before dark was of the ocean in the far distance over lots of green trees (Great view???). The lighting was horrible as we sat in a dark blue bulb lit table and the food looked blue and awful. Service was great; read that as prompt. Most food was deep fat fried... Octopus (not deep fat fried) was rubbery and fishy. What was most irritating was a single musician with all sorts of electronic accompaniment that he sang with and it was extremely loud and not very good. He did not get any applause when he asked for it. We left as soon as possible and will not go back.

if you looking to eat "comida criolla" this is the place. Great view. Nothing fancy. Billiards tables, loud music.

“great restaurant and beautiful view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2012

the food is great in this place up the hill from Jobo beach in Isabela. The fried pork and chicken appetizer are excellent. Service is good and can't say enough of the view. Highly recommend this place
