We spent a week in San Ignacio, and a week in San Pedro, and this place was really really good. Best food we had in San Ignacio for sure. Really nice people, and great service. If you want something authentic, this is your place.

The restaurant looks not that atractive but iff you like local food and don't mind to sit in plastic chairs. It's worth it. Service is friendly and food is tasting good. It's a little bit outside the 'centre' and closed on sundays.
