So-so ceviche, but the pizza was really good, and prices are reasonable. The place has a lot of character, though the service was rather poor.

I stayed for one week at the BD hotel. The food is very delicious. The restaurant is kind of italian/mediteran and local food. The pastas are amazing. They have specials each time and the personal is very friendly. I loved staying at the BD Hotel.
