We asked our taxi driver where we could eat some local food and he brought us here. So happy he did! Everything in here is made locally, from the wooden furniture of the table and chairs (and baby highchair) The decor is a mashup of...More

Lovely family run place. There's no menu you just pick from what's made. Enjoyable experience, very casual but a good meal and fairly cheap. Perfect if you were alone or with a few friends. The freshly made juices are a nice addition too.

The place does not have a menu; you look through the kitchen window and see what they have, and choose. No cervezas, though. The food is simple, but tasty. And the prices very cheap. The kids loved the mole de pollo, and they made us...More
