Friends had recommended this restaurant to us. Our visit was one which convinced us to never go back, even though it is close to where we stay. One of our group ordered onion rings, which came out looking slightly green. They had clearly been fried in old oil. Jalapeño poppers were ordered by others and somehow they were greasy and... More

Use to be able to get a beer or margarita for $1, but now it only applies to the beer. They use to have an awesome avocado & shrimp salad, this time I could barely find the shrimp. Atmosphere & service still great.

We went to the Sea Monkey as part of the IFC homes tour and really liked breakfast so tried it another day for lunch and margaritas...fabulous! Certainly one of the best Margarita we've had yet and service and food were great. We've tried a few other on the beach locations and did not get such good service...we'll definitely go back!

Whats up at the Sea Monkey? Did ownership change? They used to get you in the door / beach with the $1 USD beer special. Thats now gone. Still had a couple of Pacifico's, a guacamole bowl, and the fish tacos. The food is still decent. The guacamole was fresh and the fish on the taco was tasty. Service was... More

This place used to be great. Now the service is awful & they have this annoying saxaphone player playing like Kenny G all day long. The burger tasted bad & had no fries . Its not worth your time & money. It was enjoyable previous years. Staff is not attentive @ all.

My wife and I stopped here after a morning of site seeing. We sat at a table on the ocean side of the Malecon. It took a bit before we were asked for a drink order, but once we received that first order, the staff was attentive about keeping us supplied with cold Dos Equis lagers. Not sure about the... More

I have to admit, the margaritas are very good. But! The service is terrible. We wanted to order food from the menu but considering how badly we were ignored while having a drink we decided to go elsewhere. Trying to pay for the drinks was another huge chore. We ended up leaving the money on the table and leaving just... More

Not what it use to be. I don't know if it is because they feel too confident that they don't need to maintain what they use to offer but I will not be going back. There are so many other good restaurants, with lower prices and a great view.
