We ordered the arroz verde con pollo and it was fantastic. I suggest only ordering 1 entree unless you're Andre the Giant or a competition eater with an axe to grind. Like the other reviews state, service isn't great but they're definitely helpful when your...More

This is not an expensive place, is quite simple, the service is not the best. But the food is very good! The tuna causa limeña is great and the seafood corvina is awesome for a sunday lunch.
