My mom and I chose the fish special of the day. One nice thing about this restaurant is that their fish is always a fillet- they told me there is never any bones in their fish, and none of that "whole fish on your plate, staring at you with wide, creepy eyes" business. So I always feel safe ordering the fish here, which is more than I can say for any other place on the island. I've accidentally eaten fish guts here once... I'm still not over that. And the fish here is ALWAYS delicious. Cooked to perfection.
The first time we visited this place was on my last birthday. My husband and I both got the salmon and it was so good- seared perfectly and resting on top of a bed of quinoa with sauteed veggies. I bought some quinoa so I could re-create that but haven't gotten around to it yet.
Anyway, the fish my mom and I ordered back in March was Espada Preto, a large, black, SUPER creepy-looking, deep sea fish with a mouth full of fangs. Or at least they look like fangs. It is a tasty fish though! It came on a bed or rice (that was actually seasoned- something rare in restaurants here), covered with a light lemon sauce and a nice hearty serving of broccoli on the side. Everything was done to perfection, not over or under-done.
Maybe I'll get a chance to go again soon... this restaurant is delicious, classy, and has a very friendly wait-staff. It is extremely popular so it fills up fast and can get loud, but it's so worth it! We've brought our baby with us every time we've been and they are very accomodating and even have a high chair. :)
