Beautiful location on Banderas Bay. Simple menu. Great pina coladas with real coconut! The seafood burrito was awesome but it took over an hour to get our food with one waiter.:-(

This restaurant is situated right on the beach front with an amazing view! My husband's cousin took us to eat there and it was amazing! They have a variety of seafood dishes and the service was great. We had a delicious seafood platter that offered fish and shrimp prepared several different ways and it was enough for several people.

Phone number does not work to check if open, went on Sunday and they were closed for a wedding so went to public beach right next to it and got beer and shrimp from beach vendor, went back Monday all was good.. This is Mexico. Most places don't post hours.. Will definitely go back

Found this delightful restaurant with a white beach and few people. The service was excellent and the food beautiful and delicious. My shrimp was scrumptious and my friend's fish was the best she had on this trip.

One of my favorite places to go in the bay. The seafood is some of the best and very very reasonably priced. The view of the bay is great. The waiters are awsome and there is always a bottle of tequila on the table that is free to have a few shots. The coconut shrimp and the whole fish are... More

A local friend took me to this somewhat out of the way place for lunch. It's the quiet season so very few people in the restaurant. The service was good and the food very good. Even before you order you have plenty of starting food with fresh nachos, salsa, fish broth and tequila. Had a lovely view of the bay,... More
