Have eaten here a half a dozen times, and the food is consistently good. The staff listen carefully as you take your order, and the food is delivered promptly. Highly recommend in its price range.

They do all the typical dishes of the area, but I try the shrimps with the green pepper that was amazing! Nice place also to take a beer watching the street
