Food is fresh and homemade and the kitchen looks very clean. Real Mexican feel to everything they serve. VERY GOOD.

150 pesos (6 pounds per person) for an unlimited buffet! (Fruits,cereal,pastries) They make eggs on demand fresh to order scrambled/fried with numerous sides ex. Queso/bacon/ and really fluffy pancakes !! 🍳🥞🥓🧀🥐 Such a bargain! And you have the option of having breakfast on the beach!

Food was nude. That being said, service is not great, there's no wifi, no credit card payments, and then there's this awful thing about listing the prices in the menu without taxes. That might be customary in USA, but not here in Mexico

We had the tostadas, tacos and a burger which were very tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. Mezcal mojito was a good choice for a fresh cocktail! Definitely a good place for lunch.
