Friendly outdoor family owned place with TV’s and a nice atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the Grilled Shrimp Brochettes. Other dishes ordered were ok though.

I found the food to be mediocre and the service slow. I really didn't see what everyone else is raving about. And they definitely do not deserve the vegetarian friendly tag.

if you want to try on of the best octopus in town, try the grilled one at La Garrapata. Mixed Ceviche is also a great option here, friendly staff, nice open area and great quality, super recommended!

Steak cooked to perfection with a beautiful sauce. Cooked amazingly well to your liking with a very good size. Fantastico service. The waiter, even though his English was poor, was passionate and still was able to help with the highest standard for everyone. Highly recommended.

The 2 for 1 cocktails and seating right on the sidewalk to people-watch is what drew me in! I had the fish and it was fabulous and reasonably priced! I enjoyed everything and the mojitos were awesome!
