    You both eat fish. You always rent a car. No reason NOT to go.

    Do you think they will grill or broil a fish entree for me? I've been there twice in the past and only reason we haven't returned is that I don't care for the way they prepare their fish on their menu (too greasy and too much oil for my taste.) Some places do a good job at accommodating my request (Gasparito's) and some others do not (Matthew's - my grouper was soaked in butter and I couldn't eat it. I hate butter and use oil sparingly.) All I ask is for a nice piece of fish (Wahoo, mahi mahi, grouper, barracuda) grilled or broiled with lemon.

    We were each given a choice of pan-fried or grilled for our fish of choice. We chose grilled and thought it was just fine.

    La Tratorria El Fero Blanco has one of the best sunset views on the island. People line up at the railing to have pictures taken as the sun is setting. The food is OK and the wait staff is good.

    Cook's is a fun place. Cook on your own Hibachi grille, if you like. Or, just enjoy the friendly atmosphere. It is just past El Goucho on the left. Good food, too.

    Unique Experience....

    Casa Vieja for great Colombian food accompanied by a Tire Shop sound track from the tire shop next door. Never bothers me. Others have said it was a little noisy.

    The Sultan... for great Arab food. The TV's blast bellydancing shows. Really, when was the last time you had a shoarma or a shish kebab and watched belly dancing?

    Just saying....

    for their pricing, the food should be way better than ok
    in fact. "ok" is the best review i have ever read of their food

    go for a drink and a photo op with sunset then dine elsewhere
