Service was good and seating is under a palapa with hard-pack sand, comfortable. Appetizer of calamari was breaded, not battered, and was good. Fish was thin filets of el dorado and tasty. A solid place for seafood eats.

We ate the fish of the day, which was grouper, and the seafood mixola and both were excellent. This is an authenic local restaurant with very reasonable prices. It is one of our favorites.

We had seen reviews for this restaurant and walked about 40min along beach to get, to it, but well worth the effort. Visited on 3 occasions and the food didn’t disappoint. If you love fish it’s heaven. It’s a little tucked away so was never...More

Nice atmosphere the floor was sand. The food is decent with nice portions. We went during the off-season. We were the only ones in the restaurant at dinner time. The reason I gave this only three stars was because the mosquitoes were ferocious there. After...More

The restaurant is very unassuming-the floor was sand but the food was very good-I ordered the buttered fish fillet (grouper) and it was just delicious. The Mayan spread we were given was just excellent -a mixture of zucchinis and other veggies. As a suggestion the...More

Came here once, and came back. Best seafood in PM. Eat here, get their recommendations. Ceviche is delicious, loaded with fish. First night had the shrimp burrito with a mole sauce that is to die for. Second time got garlic shrimp (and ceviche again). Yum!...More

Can't speak to the lobster, but their drinks are excellent and very reasonably priced (we found all the food to be reasonably priced as well). The margaritas were SO good!!

Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
