The food was really good. The staff is friendly and the environment is really pleasant. They have a new place just next door to the old restaurant. You should visit this new place.

The atmosphere is nothing to write home about but the food is quite good and reasonably priced. If you're in the neighborhood, check this place out.

The Pupusas are one of the traditional dishes from San Salvador; here, in this small restaurant you can find a variety of Pupusas. You need to try them; also their soups are very good. Lunch specials are excellent for the price including soup or dessert...More
