Happy Hour = 2 for 1 Margaritas and the most beautiful sunset! We also had a delicious Poke bowl with FRESH tuna that had just got in! They also offer a 4 dip nacho platter to start. The perfect first dinner in Santa-Teresa.

The margaritas are worth the visit. Great salsa selection, chips weren’t made fresh but still great. I got the portobello mushroom tacos and they were amazing! Cash only.

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!
