Great food at the beach, you will have your meal looking at the caribbean sea. Book in advance to make sure you get a table outdoor. Highly recommend the tuna with coconut rice and vegetables. :)

Stumbled across this place while exploring San Andres, saw that it was busy which is always a good sign. I was served quite promptly !

Sea food is excelent and service is very good, your are right on the beach. Foreigners only eat at this restaurant. Prices are 2x that of Captain Mandy in Downtown San Andres. Sea food plattern for 1 person 80.000 COP. Plus 10% Service.

We ordered two rice dishes, with shrimp, and fish, and both were extremely bland, so quite disappointing, especially considering that they are not cheap at around 40k per plate. The mango juice was excellent. It's a busy place, on the beach, so kitchen service is very slow. Total cost for two main, side of fries, one juice and one water... More
