Everything we had for dinner was excellent. First we had the papusas because they were new to us and were being cooked on a grill out by the street and looked great. We ordered 3 for an appetizer. They are yummy especially the shrimp filled one. I ordered the coconut cream shrimp and my husband had the carne asada. Both... More

Good fajitas, fish tacos, big burritos, and a welcoming atmosphere of locals and tourists. Service was good, prices reasonable. The burritos can be shared easily, fajitas not so much, but plenty of food for one. Restaurant is in town (no water view) and so relaxing.

Very friendly staff and my family enjoyed the variety and the selection available. Note they do not take credit cards. The dining area is essentially outside and is clean and well maintained.

I had a bad feeling about this place from the start - it's back street location, random menu and inflated prices - but we were hungry and tired from walking all day. Once we started to eat, my gut feelings were confirmed. The food was NOT good and we only ate half of what we ordered. It was our last... More

This restaurants menu can be quickly described as the following: select one meat (seafood, chicken, beef, pork, etc) and select a preparation style (burrito, tacos, quesadilla, ceviche, nachos etc.). Food is good, but quite expensive for some things (30$ US for a Burrito!?!).

Just stopped in for lunch today. No crowd and lunch came quickly. Got the fish burrito. Huge, tasty, loads of fresh very mild white fish. Could only finish half! Will definitely be back. My experience did not mirror the recent negative reviews At All. Notice I put my sunglasses in the pic for scale!

For papusas!! Not as busy as they were on middle street but seriously folks they have the BEST food and reasonable. Mixed papusas (pork beans and cheese) are the best!! The quesadillas looked amazing. One night stewed chicken was off the charts next night it was ok but not as good as the night before. In season lobster burritos are... More

This was just bad food. It's tourist trap. Chicken was chewy. Just bad food. Beans from the nachos made us sick for days. Plz do yourself a favor, do not eat there.
