My wife and I enjoyed a nice lunch accompanied by some great cocktails. The Langostino (Latin lobster) was delicious and so were the drinks including the watermelon caipirinhas. Great restaurant on the beach!

Incredible view of sunset while enjoying a romantic dinner night on the beach. Food was very good, priced slightly above the average. Stay away from the two for one tropical drinks, would say there was very little alcohol in those. Atmosphere is really special, sat...More

Went there for lunch, food was incredible. We had a ceviche, which I highly recommend it. Also had tacos and a platter, they were great! Good service! The view is priceless. If you're in Santa Teresa or nearby, should visit them.

My wife and I will be traveling to Santa Teresa in a month. My wife has celiac disease and must eat a gluten-free diet. Are there any gluten-free options at your restaurant? Thanks!

Beautiful beachfront Mexican fusion restaurant located in the highly rated Playa Cielo hotel. Daily specials according to the catch of the day (lobster and fish are a house specialty!) Combined with a rich diverse menu, serving fresh ingredients to your table.
An amazing selection of delicious, naturally flavored maragaritas, to sip while watching the incredible sunset views.
Come and enjoy our food and atmosphere!
