Stopped in for lunch. Buttery soft fried fish tacos with a nice Baja type sauce and crispy cabbage. Add a nice Dos XX and it's a good day. Side note: For a killer sunset, go up top. It's magical!

Great little bar on the town side of the beach road for a cold beer and delicious fish tacos. Watched the champions league there and atmosphere was decent.

This place is huge. It keeps going. There is also a Sunset deck to enjoy a drink. We only went for dinner but were pleasantly surprised. Food was very good especially the Fajitas. Could see it getting a little rowdier crowd later into the night.

A must go! The fish and beef tacos were outstanding! They also had live music on the weekend. If you're looking for authentic tacos, this is the place. Super casual and great anytime.

The waiter ripped us off $100 USD, service was poor and food was basic. The only good things was the view from the top. Would not recommend to anyone.More

Had lunch here one day, decent prices, good atmosphere, kind of a sports bar with TVs. Also enjoyed the Sunset roof top bar one evening with good 2 for 1 drinks. Only complaint was the ceviche. It was 80% chopped tomatoes and 20% seafood, disappointing...More

One of the best places to eat in the area. Really enjoyed the fajitas and ceviche. I suggest sitting in the upper level as you can take in the sunset. Service was also great.

I'm not Mateo's but I'm pretty sure you just turn up. Only a few restaurants are so fancy you have to book in advance (read:Hartwood but there are so many other really cool places around)!
