Came 15 min before opening, and got a beer by the beach while I waited. Had ceviche (thair version that was more like a carpacio), and corbina/sea bass. Both were excellent, marvellous. Great setting.

Excellent service, great food and an incredible view on the Caribbean, listening to the sound of las bolas. A bit off the beaten path, but worth the visit.

We had lunch here when we arrived in Cahuita. It was OK, nothing special. The view is nice and people friendly.
