    Overpriced for quality of food. Our appetizer was an empanada and it came out cold and slightly frozen inside. Is it from a freezer box? Other than location food does not deserve the price being charged. Probably last time going here.

    Amazingly friendly service from the whole staff, but especially Hector. Our food came out super fast. You would think somewhere so close to the beach would prey on tourists but the place was top notch. Try the crab enchiladas -- delicious! The only con...the noise was a bit much but not overwhelming. (Please remember the servers have lots of tables to serve + may be doing so in a specific rotation. The employees were constantly on the move! Really busting butt to deliver a wonderful experience.)

    Food was great, waitress was awesome and very attentive. Only issue we had was the angry bald man(I’m assuming who was the manager, didn’t introduce himself) made us feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome when he came to us with a seating issue that should have been dealt with in a very different manor.

    We made reservations for brunch for a party of three. The service was very good. We each had a different drink that was included: Bloody Mary, mimosa and margarita. None of us liked our drinks. I suppose that since they’re “bottomless”, they use the cheapest liquor available. At least that’s how they tasted. The water was the best beverage they served us. The food was just ok. We didn’t expect much being a buffet and we were correct. The best thing was the gentleman who made the omelettes. Not made with fresh eggs, but he was so nice and entertaining that we overlooked it. The rest of the buffet items were mediocre. Not the fault of the restaurant, but there were several large parties that created chaos in the buffet lines. They stood and chatted rather than making selections and moving on. Very rude customers. I noticed several women who had ridiculously piled high plates of food. Guess that’s what you get when it’s all you can eat. I went back after my omelette to try to make a taco, but the line was too long and not moving. I settled for guacamole from the other side of the room. The best thing was the view, but not worth the hassle. Needless to say, we won’t be back. And I will never again make plans to attend a buffet.

    Came here for dinner last night. The location is great. We ordered the guacamole with shrimp to start. Came with strawberries and pineapple. It was very interesting. The guac and shrimp had no real flavor too it. We also got the lobster quesadilla, tacos al pastor and chicken quesadilla. The lobster quesadilla came in 4 slices and after eating the first, I picked the lobster out of the remaining slices. The chicken quesadilla was more of a burrito than a quesadilla. The tacos weren’t too spectacular. Overall, there seemed too many different flavors being mixed that fell flat.

    Super busy, had a reservation. Sat down and ordered guacamole and drinks. Guacamole came and the chips were super bland and the guac was watery and lacked flavor . Then waited over 20 minutes for our drinks at which point we were told they were out of frozen margaritas. At this point we still hadn’t put in our main order and asked for the check. The severe came back and said the guac was on the house. The server was very nice and apologetic but the section had a big party and the place was just too busy and couldn’t handle the volume.

    The food was good. The room could have been a little brighter so that I could see my food, but I guess that was the ambiance they were going for. The food was delivered rather quickly. The server could have been more attentive as he forgot to bring out our drinks. We just drank water and reminded him when he brought the bill.

    I was able to make the a la carte reservation but when I got there, it was a buffet. I didn’t want a buffet. It would have been nice to have known ahead of time. Service was very slow. My waiter forgot our drinks multiple times. I had to keep asking. Not sure I’ll return but maybe they were too busy. Very poor service.

    We were seated indoors, which is what we asked for. One set of napkin with fork and knives was on the table and there was not a second set. No plates on the table either. Our waiter came by in about 10 minutes to tell us that he’ll be by later. 5 minutes passed, waiter stopped by and he took our drink order ad well as appetizers. Our crab guacamole and shrimp ceviche arrived 10 minutes later. The ceviches was very watery. The crab guacamole had no crab. We mentioned to our waiter, he noticed and promised he would bring over the crab. 5 minutes away, loose crab meat was brought over in a metal condiment container for ketchup. 15 minutes later our drinks was brought over, which the waiter spilled 1/5 of my wife’s drink on the table, no apologies. Both our drinks were very weak. We finished our appetizers and did not finished our drink, paid and left. Not a Positive experience to say the least. Between sitting down and leaving, the whole experience was about 2 hours because of long delays to get service, order, food and beverage.
