Everything was amazing. The Mar y Tierra was amazing. The Habanera salsa is great on anything and Maria makes the best tortillas. Margarita Zapata was fantastic

Our favorite hangout, and where we first stop after getting off the ferry. Great mojitos and fajitas. Relax in the shade and dig your toes into the sand. You’ve arrived!

Had a great meal here. The cocktails were nice and the service was very attentive, despite the fact it was busy. I had the Zapata Camerones and my boyfriend had the beef fajitas and both were great. Reasonably priced too!

A good spot for a drink before dinner. Chips and guacamole a good starter. Bartender not the friendliest - wouldn’t share Wifi password. But still a good set up to sit at the bar alone comfortably and people watch.

We enjoyed this place. We happened to visit during carnival and the dancers showed up outside the restaurant so we had great entertainment. The food and drinks were good.
