Had lunch and dinner hear during our week in montanita. Very large and varied menu, although certain things weren't available. Tasty food and a nice view of the beach. Stray dogs and cats running around though which could put you off your food!

Went here with the family for lunch- very good service, the food was probably top tier for Montanita, and the prices very reasonable. Add to this amazing beach views and it's a winner. Honestly you won't regret this one.

Location of this place is prime: right on the beach with beautiful sunset. We came here on the promise of good drinks and delicious hummus. Drinks were worse than any other place (mojitos had lots of mint, but no alcohol), hummus and pita were ok,...More

The food is ok, service is ok, a little slow sometimes but fair enough. Good drinks😊 Visited two days. Nice place to have a drink and see the sunset.
