Arrived SPI after a 10 hour drive. Wanted a relaxing dinner before going to the Condo. We were greeted at the door and promptly seated. Service was excellent, our drink glasses were never empty.

Had the Camaronitas Diablitas, crab and cheese stuffed jalapeños, a pound of boiled shrimp and a dozen raw oysters. Very delicious. Husband had the fried oyster plate, they were not very good. Staff was great. Would definitely eat here again!!

Nice doorman who kept us company while we waited. Food was average. Service a bit on the slow side. We were surprised by the fact that a restaurant whose menu is half Mexican food didn't have a full bar that served margaritas. In a beach...More

Crab is not a common item on any restaurant menu on SPI. If it is, it is most likely a frozen, imported variety. Stick with the local fish and shrimp! You'll be hooked.
