Shrimp was excellent! Tiffani's service was outstanding. We will definitely come back! We also appreciate that one of the owners stopped by to ensure that the food and service exceeded our expectations.

Great ceviche, great food in general. Better mojitos. Beautiful rooftop patio, friendly service. Great spot to canoodle with your significant other just off the beach. Also a great spot to take pictures to piss your crazy ex-wife off with (because I need 100 characters 😂)! #gringayeltoronegro
