We were told to eat here by one of the locals we talked with. He sure gave us good information, this place is a local gem. Very nice people, great food in a casual atmosphere and fair prices. I can't wait to go back.

Nice waitstaff in a casual beach environment. We had good margs, a nice bowl of fish soup, and very good ceviche mixto made with just the right amount of lime. They obviously take pride in their work. We will definitely go back.

There's something to be said about eating at a plastic table, in a plastic chair, in the sand. This place was literally across the street from where we stayed. We saved it for the last meal-- I had amazing grilled shrimp absolutely covered in butter...More

Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
