The Gonzalez Seafood Restaurant was a special experience for us. We had some of the best seafood we have ever eaten. We ordered the "chillo" which is red snapper with an accompaniment of shrimp (4 or 5 large ones) and lobster pieces (absolutely delicious). All...More

We tried the mahi-mahi in alcaparras sauce and the red snapper al ajillo; they were both excellent. The flancocho (flan + cake) was outstanding. The piña coladas made it all perfect!

I had very high expectations since everyone who I asked about this place said "it the best". As we know, opinions differ. I think I would have given it an additional star had we visited during the day, and I could've appreciated the view, but...More
