Stopped there for a cold beer and some snacks after working the Malecon. Great setting overlooking the Pacific. I have the seafood ceviche, very good and my wife ordered the shrimp tacos, also very good.

We had the 10 piece shrimp bucket a couple of times during our 2 week stay. Great juicy shrimp, also various cooked shrimp prepared in many ways. Service is fine. Prices are fair. Location on the patio is nice for a beer and a meal.
