Fine dining atmosphere on the beach. The Fish soup was and ceviche was amazing. Fish very fresh and well prepared. A bit overpriced. Service very slow.

Three severs did their best to handle a full house, but we waited almost an hour for food and had to ask a couple of times for more drinks. Food was ok when it came, but nothing amazing and definitely not worth the premium prices. Lovely setting and great live music, but we won't be back.

Spent a couple of days hanging out at the beach at Playa Hermosa. Ate lunch here both days. Friendly staff, clean, well run restaurant. The Chifrijo and Tuna Sandwich were very good. The chicken burger was OK, nothing to write home about. The Ceviche Mixto was lousy. The octopus was super rubbery and the fish was very blah. Try the... More

Ate here all but 4 meals, it was just that good. Ate dinner, lunch and breakfast here (breakfast is for guests of the hotel only though).Tried out a few other places, but they were just not as good overall. Between the atmosphere, friendly staff, and good food it was just a winning combination! The menu has local favorites, as well... More

Perfect beachfront restaurant with a great menu and staff. Seafood is their specialty and they do it well. Plenty of food and reasonable prices. Yellowfin tuna and shrimp was some of the best I have ever had.

All the food is delicious and there is a wide variety of things to eat and drink. The service is excellent and the prices were very reasonable, especially for the high quality of... More

The location is lovely and the people very friendly. The food on the other hand was NOT good at all. The ceviche was terrible (old) and when we complained they replaced it with a mixture of old and new. The colour difference, texture and taste was not horrible. They claimed that the Tuna was fresh so we ordered the seared... More

Great setting - tables on the beach shaded by trees. Had the chicken soup and it was great. Nice chunks of chicken and lots of veggies in a tasty broth.

This is one of a small group of restaurants that are on the beach..They all have a great view but this has some of the best food in the group. Service was very good and the beers were cold.
