We ate here twice during our visit in San Juan del Sur and the tapas were great. Passion fruit chicken and bacon wrapped shrimp were our favorites. The owner is super friendly and atmosphere is great for a relaxing dinner.

We had a great time. the Owner and staff were outstanding. I had the Octopus and Calamari and both were great (Cooked Soft not Chewy). My friends had the whole fish of the day and it was also cooked perfectly.
