Best nachos ever! My son and I took my wife there for her birthday. We ordered the nachos with the achiote pork. The 3 of us couldn't finish it. Delish! I had the ceviche as well. The ceviche wasn't my favorite but still good. I've eaten here before and they also have great tacos. And you can't beat the atmosphere!

Fantastic service & such beautiful scenery. This lovely spot by the water is definitely worth checking out + the staff were super friendly about us being vegan ?? We felt great after eating here, thank you ??

Unique & wonderful experience on a floating restaurant in the harbour. Excellent quality food, and friendly prompt service here. Chicken Quesadillas and Halibut Tacos were our order, along with Margaritas of course !!


The food was very good, although I couldn't try the tortilla soup because it arrived a little late. the service was excellent.


Me and my boyfriend love to eat here, they always have the most amazing and friendly servers, who are always happy to tend to all of your needs or wants you may have. The food is always top notch. Over all its a great place for a nice date night or family outings ??

Great place to stop for lunch after walking the seawall. Delicious and large sized nachos, beers and a dog-friendly patio! Plus they have vegan tacos now.

A great meal. Beautiful being on the water. Usual fare. A little pricy, but your paying for the vibe. Great crew. Food is delicious. Not sure if they have customer bathrooms. Some people seemed to be trying to find them.
