Soups were in three small cups. All very tasty. I had a nice fresh salad. My son had a fresh looking sandwich. We tried drinks made from fresh fruits. Awesome.

Most of the people in our 9 person party enjoyed their food. But if you aren't adventurous, this isn't the place for you. We had a couple of people dining with us who couldn't find anything on the menu. They don't have a basic burger...More

This little restaurant is on the fringes of the main tourist area and seemed to be frequented by locals as well as tourists. The menu is interesting and everything we had was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. What more can you ask for?
