Reviewed 24 March 2016 via mobile

Since we got in this place the smell ga e me nausea and wanted to vomit. To tell you the truth I did not ordered anything from the menu. Nevertheless all my friends and family ordered and I was right-plates were awful and seafood did not smell fresh. Prices were surprisingly more expensive than everywhere else and they charge the bill with tac of 15%- in all reataurants and hotels they do NOT charge taxes. We were robbed 50 dollars when we paid and they did not call us- we had to go back and the waiter had already kept the 50 dollars- we just got back 30 dollars- never ever again coming back to this restaurant! If you can call it a restaurant:) This place should NOT be in the top 10 restaurants in the island!!!!

Thank jczs

Right on one of the most beautiful beaches of the island. Average quality of the food pretty good. Prices little bit too high and poor service. Personnel not very friendly and long wait.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant - being the only spot on the beach we didn't have high expectations, but it turned out to be our best lobster meal of the week! Two big lobster tails, served in an 'island style' sauce of coconut & chilli, with tostones (fried plantain) & rice. Excellent service & good drinks too.

Another gem on Big Corn, we spend our afternoons at Picnic Center swimming, eating, drinking ice cold Victorias ( if captain D has made it in) it is a great place to meet fellow trevelors, dance on the beach, read a book etc. Chill vibe good food

They had firstly run out of fruit for breakfast but what can you do? The view is gorgeous and the beach perfect for a swim. Service ok but not with a smile.

However after having ordered and asking for the bill, it was substantially more than we expected even accounting for the 15% tax etc. When we asked for a written itemised bill instead of just taking the amount she'd said as a given it turned out that the 'prices in the menu were no longer current'. Update your menus then! May have been an honest mistake but the attempts to confuse with cordobas/dollars Spanish/English, the 15% (we speak both and can do the maths) and then for it to be explained away with an up until then unmentioned price increase made us feel uneasy.
