Tourist Trap/Rip-off Dec 15, 2010
. We had a total rip-off when our bill arrived.
At the entrance were specials of the day - many seafood plates at 325 to 400 pesos.
The 4 of us requested the salmon and were told (very early in the evening) none left.
We checked the other seafood options on the menu and our waiter (rip-off artist) offered us the Tuna special.
Note all plates were 325 to 400 pesos.
When the bill arrived he charged us 825 pesos for each plate.
When we complained he pointed to another blackboard of specials inside the restaurant on the side (out of view) with a plate (no tuna named) at 805 pesos.
Our mistake we did not confirm the price when we ordered, he made it seem the same as all other specials.
I complained again to the manger who discounted the 15 peso per plate error...
WOW,,, watch out especially if you do not speak Spanish or Portuguese...
Eat somewhere else..
Big rip off for crusing English speaking tourists...
