Clean and friendly atmosphere. Good appetizers and just average cuisine. Inexpensive and very good service. Menu is limited to a dozen options. It's a good stop to relax in a friendly comfortable small restaurant.

I had stewed lamb with rice and beans and fried plantains. Classic dish perfectly seasoned. My wife had the salmorejo de jueyes. We liked the food so much that we order two additional dishes to take home.
