We enjoyed a lunch with local fish, shrimp and traditional sausage appetizers. The food was well prepared. The atmosphere and service were too notch. A great stop in a drive down the coast from Monterrey.

Went once for dinner, the food was good and the service average. The best about this restaurant is its location overlooking the port of Punta del Este.
