As others have said - a long wait but great food takes time. Prawns from the grill were perfect. Excellent service - will definitely go back.

Tasteless greasy soup filled with potatoes and dried out chicken. No reaction when told of dried chicken at end of meal. Fast service with no follow up, no offer of dessert or coffee. Never again

Incredibly good mojitos! Fantastic Rondon seafood soup! One of our favorite eating experiences on this coast. and we found it by accident trying to find somewhere else. To top it off, the prices were extremely reasonable.

Enjoyed some home cooked Caribbean food at Selvin's. Conveniently location near our AIR BNB, great covered open air seating area, delicious Pina Coladas. This restaurant accepts credit cards.

OK. Setting is pleasant, food is decent. Fish on one occasion was well-prepared and tasty; another time a bit over-cooked. London, the seafood chowder, was a disappointment (too little seafood), but the management without our asking did not charge for it.

Yes the service is slow (maybe a 30min wait) but it’s worth it. If you are very hungry order a starter such as Soup or Patacones, they serve those type of dishes faster than the main course. You must try the rice and beans, it’s...More
