When you come to this restaurant be sure to come before sunset. You can sit on the beach or inside both will afford a great view of sunset. It is a casual eatery. Reservations are not accepted another reason to go early. The food is very good we sample the tomato and watermelon salad which was very refreshing. For our... More

Several people we talked to recommended this oceanfront restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Creative and non assuming menu. Molcajete was over the top flavorful and was enough for two people to share-with leftovers! Stuffed cheese and shrimp in a pan as appetizers were equally good and prices reasonable. Will definitely go back before we leave.

Went for lunch, hubby enjoyed the fish while I just wanted a good hamburger for a change. I was not disappointed! The burger is located to the far right bottom on the chalk board that some may miss. I say this as my sister on her last visit went minimum 5 times and never saw it!

Easy walk from Sheraton. Tables in the sand and great sunset view. Service is not good. A Molcajetes is a lava rock that cooks your choice of meat w melted cheese and is fantastic. We go here just for these.

Our lunches were fine, but I think the big attraction here is the location. A nice part of the beach without so many beach vendors. I had the Chunky Salad with shrimp which was pretty good. Hubby had the coconut shrimp which he thought were a little over cooked. Not a bad place for lunch or drinks, though not a... More
