This casual fish restaurant has an amazing location, just up from the beach on Playa Negra, Cahuita. The menu is varied and interesting, catering to all tastes as can try traditional dishes and international. Every day there is a fish of the day but always exquisite prawns and other shellfish. the staff are both professional and friendly. Sitting on one of the outside tables with the sound of the surf below is memorable

Came here for lunch. The staff was lovely and the cool breeze and ocean side tables nice. The calamari app was ok (a bit pungent in a basic spicy pasta sauce). The Avocado salad was huge and just what we needed (veggie wise). The shrimp and rice was delicious, and the fish d Chips was actually the true winner. Super yummy fish! Very weird heavy mayo dip though. A bit overpriced at $60 without alcohol and at lunch.

We ate here three times the food and service is so good. Fresh fish, well seasoned meats and hand cut fries. You can sit right by the beach and swing in the hammock if you wish.

We had an excellent meal here. The fish is fresh and well prepared. The sea bass was especially good.

We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful local cuisine and friendly staff right on the beach. Definitely in a class by itself in Cahuita. Within walking distance of town, but location is best reached by car in the evening. (Payment is a little strange as 13 % tax is only added when paying by credit card).
