When entering the Marlin we were met with a friendly face, Steven, our food server extraordinaire. We ate the American and Tico breakfast. Unlimited fresh brewed coffee with warm milk available and watermelon juice complimentary. A must go to. Arturo Carol Fred and Chris

Great lunch venue, reasonable pricing. I had Cerviche & nachos which was more than enough, with beer £7.50. Nice sea views

Had lunch at this restaurant. It has a good vibe right over the road from the beach. I had the local catch of the day which was mahi mahi and it was delicious.
