Fodor's Review

This is the town's hands-down lunch favorite. The seafood is delicious and the setting is unusual: glass walls replicate an oblong Mayan house, incorporating the profusion of plants outside as a design element. As the sun goes down, candles adorn the white-linen tablecloths, and soft blue lighting illuminates the outside atrium. A truly ambitious meal might start with a plate of calamari, stone-crab claws, or camarones al coco (coconut-encrusted shrimp), followed

by fresh robalo fish topped with puréed cilantro, parsley, orange, and olive oil. For dessert, the classic choice is ate, slabs of super-condensed mango, sweet potato, or other fruit or vegetable jelly served with tangy Gouda cheese. Larger groups can request one of the private dining rooms at the front of the restaurant.
