Most likely the guy tending bar or filling your drinks is the owner. His girlfriend is the chef. She's outstanding. My husband swears the tuna was the best he's had in his life. A giant tuna steak cooked to perfection (most chefs in the islands...More

Tonight I had the best steak of tuna I have ever had in a restaurant. It was a special, so you may never be so lucky, and I may never eat fish again. Everyone else seemed to like theirs too, but I don’t care. This...More

My wife and I dined here two nights because the food is by far the best on Isabela and the music so much better than anywhere else. The vegetarian option in coconut sauce is outstanding, but really it seems you can't go wrong with anything...More

This restaurant was one of the recommendations from our tour guide. This restaurant is more expensive than some of the others in town, but the food was delicious. I had the pork chop, my mom had the chicken and my sister had the swordfish. All...More

Waited 40 minutes and at the end what we got was a nicely decorated dish with the driest and tasteless barbecue fish one could imagine. TO BE AVOIDED!

Good fish of the day (but $25). Good lasagne. Mix seafood not very tasty with almost no sauce. Green salad is actually a side order, but $10! Caipirinha not very good, small and for $10. Nice waiter. Much too expensive for average food.More
