This place is located very close to the airport. In fact, you will feel like you are headed to the airport and then just before you get there you will turn left towards the water and end up at the restaurant. They have valet parking...More

The setting and atmosphere make this place. Oh, and the food is really good, too! The only reason it isn't a 5 star is because they were in the middle of changing their menu so it was very limited. Also a lot more expensive that...More

Really enjoyed the food and beautiful view looking back at SAN. Quite a unusual menu, not quite Mexican but influenced enough. Lots of seafood. Our waitress and service was great.

The view was stunning and the restaurant was floating, but the food was just ok. It was a busy night, but service was a little slow. Mexican food, but it was nothing special. Wouldn’t go again.
