This is an informal and unpretentious restaurant that falls midway between a burger-and-salad joint and a steakhouse, depending on the kind of food you select. Associated with a simple, also-recommended guesthouse, it's positioned on a narrow veranda, astride the sleepy, seafront boulevard of Esperanza's main drag, behind a screen of verdant plants. There's a definite link here with the Old Town of Key West, Florida, thanks to the establishment's recent acquisition by Glenn Curry (descendant of a family that was prominent there in the late 19th c.) and his Philadelphia-born wife, Wynne. Together, they run a down-to-earth, but not particularly whimsical, establishment with a busy bar trade. Expect a menu that includes Caesar salads, served with or without a garnish of grilled or jerk-marinated chicken; grilled pork chops; grilled fish; steaks; baby back ribs; pizzas; and sandwiches that include BLTs, burgers, and chicken-breast sandwiches. Expect slow service.
