We didn't eat there, so I can't rate the food. But, some people seated next to us seemed to enjoy it. This is a great place to stop and have a drink and take in the beautiful beach view. Don't be scared by the appearance. The staff was more than friendly, the beer was cold and there is a bathroom.... More

Fun bar and good food. The building seems to be falling down around them, but it is clean and the people are very welcoming. Service was great and atmosphere was fun. They give free tequila before you leave. Beautiful views!

You can't beat the view and location. Pass all the other restaurants and go here. The best margarita by far and the medium will satisfy 4 people. If you are lucky they will pour shots for the table out of a penis bottle.....

We rented a scooter and travel the whole island around. I totally recommend this trip (you can rent a car as well) Eastern beaches (public) are incredible! There are several restaurants (notice that they close at 5pm) and sight seeing points you can not miss.

Rented a car for the day as we were here with our cruise ship and head down the usual tourist stuff already. Wanted to take a ride over to the quieter very beautiful far side of the island. Stopped here for lunch, had some terrific guacamole and chips, chicken street tacos, strong, delicious drinks and friendly service. Be careful...Their house... More

Service was very slow. We waited 20 minutes after ordering guacamole as appetizer to find out they ran out. All the food was extremely salty. The cubes of fish in fish tacos were tiny and over-cooked. Overall a disappointment.

Fantastic drinks, food out of this world. Very entertaining waiters. I have visited this cantina for seven years. This place is located on a bluff over looking the water. Each year the ocean erodes away the beach and eventually the cantina will be gone. Everyone is invited to write your name on the wall. A great hole in the wall... More

The place itself is rather sketchy looking, however, the drinks, food and view of the ocean were incredible!

Good food and huge servings. Prices are a bit high. The staff is great. My only complaint is the whole apron penis thing. There was a family sitting next to us with kids and I felt it was really inappropriate. They shouldn't do that when there are kids around, it ruined it for me.
