This restaurant is on the beach and offers a terrific view of the evening sunset.
My husband and I each had 2 margaritas, we shared the tuna tartar appetizer (very good). My husband ordered the Mahi mahi dinner special, and I ordered a chicken quesadilla. The fish was excellent and the quesadilla was ok. (The Pico de Gallo was the best part)
Our whole bill came to 78.00 Usd.
We spent more than we wanted but the food was really good (and I have never eaten raw tuna before but it's as fresh as you're going to get it here in coco beach☺
I'd go back but order less expensive dishes next time.

Three of us came here. We ordered the catch of the day- mahi mahi, tuna ta ta and a shrimp and avocado dip with plantains. Amazing!! Best tuna I’ve ever eaten in my life. All the food was delicious. Fantastic view. Nice breeze. Great service. Highly recommended.

While enjoying beach time on the northern-most end of Coco beach (the nicest and quietest part), we usually visited this beach Cafe and bar at happy hour (3:00-6); excellent drinks and appies. Great service. You can chill in their hammocks and use their pool and beach shower. A lovely spot to watch the sun set. Good food at supper time too.

This is a gourmet restaurant and therefore more pricey. The price and quality do match, however. Very good service. We felt safe walking there and back along the beach as it is fairly well lit with private homes along the way as well.
