A solid oceanfront restaurant/bar. Atmosphere 9/10-Seating on the beach or on the patio directly behind it. Service was 8/10-I asked and received some good advice on drinks and food. Server got me to try Mezcal for the first time, enjoyed it a lot. Food 7/10- Good food. Nothing to write home about though.

We stopped here for dinner because it was across from our hotel: Garlands del Rio. I had the chicken fajitas and my husband had the sea and land fajitas. Everything was excellent including the service. I would definitely go back again.

We had planned on another venue this night but things changed so we ended up here. We were excited but that soon changed. We sat up under cover as it looked like possible rain. There was a short rainfall. There are also tables down below on beach, with candlelight in the sand on your toes thing. We were on edge... More

My wife insisted we visted this place which is a little way off the malecon. What a find. To start we had the tuna sashimi. We had the fish tacos and the Rosarito sandwich. All were great. The staff was quick but distant.

The staff goes out of the way to see to your every need. Food here is amazing. Fun sitting right on the beach with waves gently moving in the background.

Incredible food, super fresh seafood, and all right on the beach! I'd recommend the octopus chicharron. Very reasonably priced and good service as well. Heads up this place is cash only!

Atmosphere is not the reason to eat here. The fish is fantastic and the prices are perfect for a beach five. Try the coconut shrimp This is cash only
