My wife and I had Caesar salads that came with chicken fingers. They were pretty good, with the chicken being particularly tasty. However, our kids, who ordered off the kid's menu, ended up costing us more than our meals. Even the soft drinks were expensive....More

Description
Great food and prices for the adventurous that want to try the energizing peruvian ceviche or for the most conservative that want a fine Tuna steak or a good hamburguer. Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Surf videos, bar and great music.
