The mixed seafood rocked my socks. Lobster, snapper, ceviche and some swordfish. It was delicious. Excellent service but arrive early or book cos it gets busy. Drinks and dinner cost ~ £50 for two (good for lobster and snapper).

The restaurant is in a great location right on the beach. The food was very tasty. The restaurant in my opinion is one of the best in Cahuita. It is also very reasonably priced.

We very much enjoyed the dinner above the waves. Truly easy going atmosphere combined with great service and excellent dishes and drinks. This was a memorable dinner. (We got this restaurant recommended by the owner of the Suizo Loco Lodge)
