Fish & Chips Shop

“Hands down my favorite spot for sunset. There's usually a Sax player, great drinks specials with swings and day beds right on the beach which are complimentary if you are eating or drinking. 4:30-6 pm is the perfect time for El Be. ”

“Hungry for Breakfast? There's not really anything on this menu that I have had any negative comments about - you can close your eyes and pick something - it is all made in-house and is super delicious and don't judge the size, they are FILLING!! Top 3 Recommended Items: 1. The Big Bang! 2. Tico (gallo pinto - one of the best) 3. La Bomba (chocolate coffee smoothie to die for) ** SUPER KID FRIENDLY with a mini playground indoors for the kids while you enjoy your meal!”
