Once of our favorite places for dinner. Tables on the beach; can't beat the ocean view. Delicious tapas - grilled spicy shrimp; meatballs with coconut rice; bacon wrapped dates on watermelon squares. Also highly recommend- coconut seafood soup - yummy! Wonderful service.

We attended a wedding reception here, and it was set up beautifully. The staff was friendly and helpful. The ceviche and shrimp bruschetta were both amazing. Beachfront tables, covered patio bar, highly recommend!
