American Restaurant
“Really nice vibe. Relaxed and not far from the beach. I recommend the appetizers, and cocktails here, especially the guacamole. There's a lavender gin and tonic that's great! Be careful, it's kinda large. 2 will sneak up on you. I speak from experience. There's live music almost every night, from Reggae to alternative. Great vibe, good food. ”

“Although it's pricey (like, North American prices) the food is really good and the drinks as well. Great ambience, good music and they have an indoor area if you prefer the AC. It's usually busy so for Friday and Saturday nights I would recommend making a reservation. The great thing is that if it's busy or you have to wait too long for a table there are 2 other good options right there: PuddleFish Brewery and Juanita's.”
