What a great find. We enjoyed Baja fish tacos. They were so flavorful, the fish was delicious and plentiful. Chips and salsa good too. And when you're done, a shot of Kaluha on the house. Nice touch. We'll be back next year.

We stayed over at paradise village, about 1 mile away. Took a $4 cab here, awesome place and great staff! Coming back, that's for sure. We come to PV once a year, making a stop here every trip. Love the food, so amazing!

I remember that our drinks were 2 for the price of one - BOGO. My hubby & I each had 2 huge daiquiris as a result. 👍 They were great!

I'm not sure about online reservations, we walked in waited for about 15 minutes and the hostess (very nice) had a handwritten list. No credit cards accepted! Which was a surprise, since there is no visible sign.
