A bit more refined than some of its neighbors, this restaurant actually sits on a wooden platform positioned above the sand. Even nicer is the upstairs deck that lets you gaze at the ocean instead of the parking lot. The grilled USDA steak served with chimichurri is as good as it gets, and the fresh halibut fillet with beurre blanc and cassava mofongo is equally tasty. Save room for postres (dessert)—the coconut ice cream is worth every calorie. There are a couple of bars, and bands playing Latin music set the scene on weekend nights. Call ahead and you can arrange free transportation to and from your hotel—a very good deal.

If you want something totally different, this is the place. Al Fresco dining with terrific food and good service. Crab tostones are a must for an appetiser and the lobster tails are to die for although rather pricy. Music can be a bit loud on weekends but "fun" is the key word here. We were joined for dinner by an adorable kitten that wandereded through. The ocean breeze is relaxing. Not for every night dinner but worth the excursion. On weekends,
be prepared for area crowds and parking problems.
