They have the best ever Ceviche. It is on the appetizer list, but is a full meal for one. Great Margaritas and a very short walk to the bus stop. A very nice way to sit and relax.

Most meals are served in hot lava rock bowls that cook the contents whether it is the cheese and mushroom cheese appetizer or the chicken or flank steak hot bowl. Service was excellent and the prices very reasonable

Seriously so good! I’m so glad we left the resort to go enjoy some of the local spots! This is worth the trip! Get the Molcajetes and Queso Fundido
