Best seafood ever straight from the sea and the prices were reasonable. And an amazing view! Must go here for lunch or dinner.

Went there on a recommendation from one of the beach valets at Excellence RC. Take advantage of the free car service to the town to/from the hotel.

The food was immense and the atmosphere is equal. Be sure to try the swordfish and the prawn carpaccio. Also - the local beer 'pescadores' was super tasty.

I think you need to put out a public question so that someone there can ask for contact info for you. Or try contacting the hotel you'll be at to help you arrange. Sorry I don't have more for you.
