Food: amazing. Sitting above the crashing surf: amazing. Service: amazing. We went with our three kids as a celebratory meal, and we were not disappointed.

We loved this place. Everything we ordered was excellent. The ceviche was more like sashimi but it was really good. The wine list is somewhat short buy good enough. We had a lovely experience and an amazing meal.

Set overlooking the incoming surf line this is a great location with tables on the outside veranda a bonus particularly when the local sloth and baby appeared overhead in the trees looking down on us.
