You are on vacation, so skip the grilled and go with the fried fish tacos. This is our traditional first lunch here and it is a great setting right on the beach. Dinner is very good here as well. Can't beat the combination of quality and cheap.

We watched the sunset over the bay as we enjoyed our dinner. Service was good, foot was ample and good, and the setting was superb. We only learned about this place this year, and we'll be back next.

Super fresh fish! Prices are excellent! You can sit in the restaurant which is open air or they have tables on the beach. Go later to watch the pirate ship fireworks at 9:30 and they have lounge chairs on the beach. Very romantic!

We went on Saturday. They have fresh oysters on the weekend. We started with a half dozen of them. Then on to smoked marlin tacos for me and garlic shrimp tacos for my wife. And we ate to much but had some shrimp taco that had fried cheese in the middle. Those were great. All the food was fresh and... More

So yet another recommendation and boy we were in the right place! Al fresco dining with our feet literally in the sand (if you so choose). Fresh fish, tasty steak and a fried cheese appetizer (forget the name) that was to die for! Loved the option of dining at a table in the sand and recommend going at night. You... More

One enjoyable evening. My husband had the whole fried snapper and really enjoyed the fish. He felt it was worth trying it with a good Pinot Grigio and was not disappointed. The side dish of veggies and a few spoonfuls of rice was not much to rave about in taste or quantity. I had the fish of the day and... More

Our group had dinner here at a table on the beach. A beautiful evening and super meal. We all had different fish entrees and everybody raved about their choice, as well as for the wine selection. This is a gem.

After being seated on the beach we realized we should have gone an hour or two earlier for sunset drinks before dinner. The location was ideal. The service was good, the food was ok but nothing special, we had a variety of tacos. I would not recommend the walk along the beach north after dark. Very rocky and no lights.... More

Great place located just in front of the sea, but would be better, with mid range menu is great but is focused only on the restaurant concept. but should be a place to stay the whole day. instead of a couple of hours.
