Fodor's Review

Sink your teeth into a classic New York strip steak or pork chops in American-size portions at this open-air restaurant with a great sunset view. Lighter choices include eggplant parmigiana, homemade spinach-and-ricotta ravioli in marinara sauce, and delicious "dorado fingers"—battered fish-fillet strips served with tartar sauce. Rum-based drinks and margaritas flow, and beer drinkers can try Libertas, a Costa Rican craft beer, on draft. Homemade desserts are delicious, including key lime pie. The decor is decidedly nautical, with fish-themed art on the walls. Fishing and real-estate talk over beer and chicken wings keeps the U-shape bar abuzz. The kitchen is open from 11 to 3 and 6 to 9. There's also free Wi-Fi, and the friendly waitresses speak English.
