Tall delicious Bloody Marys and then the Taco trio - what a surprise. They were not your ordinary tacos. Lobster, Shrimp and Carne Asada. Didn't have the guacamole, but it sure did look good. Great marina view and quaint shops near by

Patio is great for people watching. Food portions are good but a little pricey even for being at the beach.
