Shrimp was excellent! Tiffani's service was outstanding. We will definitely come back! We also appreciate that one of the owners stopped by to ensure that the food and service exceeded our expectations.

Great ceviche, great food in general. Better mojitos. Beautiful rooftop patio, friendly service. Great spot to canoodle with your significant other just off the beach. Also a great spot to take pictures to piss your crazy ex-wife off with (because I need 100 characters 😂)! #gringayeltoronegro

My husband and I were there yesterday for lunch and cocktails. We had the Yucatán shrimp tacos with rice and beans. They were sooo good, love them tacos. Our bartender Tiffani made some suggestions as to what sauce to use, she was right. Tiffani was very friendly and had time for everyone at her bar.

We sat upstairs on the 2nd level open deck with partial views of the gulf. It's right on the strip so expect to hear all the busy street noise. Smoking allowed on this level and we got lucky that we did not sit near any smokers or smell any smoke. The coconut shrimp was very good. Very reasonable priced draft... More

Food was good and our server Tiffani was great! Attentive and fun! We were seated outside on the upper level, the view was super. We enjoyed some great margaritas as well.
