Dropped in for lunch on the way back from Portobello. Great grilled corvina, cold beers, friendly staff and a stunning view - hard to want more.

Not for the posh, this spot is right on the water, fish is fresh, service is kind and warm. Toilet was not working, they offered a 20 percent discount and a bucket. We slept to the loud sound of waves, not cars....which was nice considering...More

Octopus Garden is a wonderful seafood based restaurant located on the Caribbean Ocean. We offer waterfront dinning as well as up stairs at the outside style bar as well as around the balcony overlooking the Ocean. Our house specialty is a Peruvian Octopus simmered in a coconut milk until it becomes tender and juicy. Although we specialize in seafood we also have have hamburgers and french fries to spaghetti :P yum yum Come visit us any time hours from 8:00am - 8:00pm come join us any time for blueberry waffles and Angel's special homemade Strawberry Shortcake!
