This spot was across from my hotel and a good "quick" meal. I had ceviche and a salad and was nice service. Very pleasant decor, open and airy w/high ceilings and open front to square.

We ate excellent crab and very good octopus, the rice with lobster was not that good. The service was slow and it was very hot inside the restaurant. In general we liked it.
