El Tico captures all that is magical about this area. The bench style seating means that everyone can see the majestic view of the beach. It is busy. It is fun and the menu has something for everyone.
And everyone is welcome. We came off the beach one day. Another day from surfing and another day from a hike. The rest of the clientele was the same. This is casual dinning of high standards. The choice on the menu covers all taste buds - from spicy to amazing burgers. And the cupcakes are a work of art in themselves, the size actually daunting!
While El Tico is exceptionally busy, we have never felt rushed. We have never been told we can have a space for a set time or been presented with the bill before asking.
This is a restaurant well worth a visit (or in our case, many visits!). They haven't seen the last of us!
