The interior could use a makeover-table and decor not so good. They had rock and roll playing outside? Pricey -if looking for better prices you need to leave resort area. Good food, amazing service. Mofongo with seafood and chicken wings excellent.

The food was terrrrrrible. All 4 of us got something different and all 4 entrees were terrible. Do not go here. Plenty of other places around to waste your money and appetite on this place.

Ivan and his crew took great care of our group of 10 people. The food was really good-ceviche, mofongo with seafood, everyone liked their food. The service was great also!! Nice portions that were very reasonably priced. Would definitely go back!!
