A very lively place in the high season. Good seafood and killer drinks. Tortilla soup is fantastic. The shrimp ajillo on pasta is delicious.

Went with a group of 11 and several of us ordered the fish and it was sooooo delicious, tasty and moist. Loved it! The only bad thing is mosquitoes. I had my repellent but the smell of repellent can overpower. Still food was great!
