But don't let Francesca scare you, she is a little grumpy. We had the virgin coco fresa and had to order a second one because it was that good. Nice place to spend the whole day and have a few drinks. Reserve one day in...More

Went today with some friends, they recomended this place and they wanted to go back! They were right about the food and location! You sit outside right next to the beach. Food takes a bit of time - but its worth it!

The outside of this place does not tell you anything; however, once you are in you will be sitting next to the ocean (literally!) if you are able to get a table outside. This restaurant is not inexpensive (by local standards) but you will certainly...More

This restaurant and La Regatta were the 2 best places to eat in San Andres Island. Both were excellent. I was with a party of 5 and we had various steak and seafood entrees. All of the food was perfect. The owner is present and...More

Attitude, slowness and should I say arrogance in the service. Owners should understand that customers that come here are often well traveled and if we are paying double for the food we eat we expect ambiance, decor (which is both there with the excellent setting...More
