You can drive by this place but make sure you don't. The ambiance is excellent and the food is fantastic. The most moist chicken I've had in some time. The ravioli is meat sauce was delicious. pizza are also excellent.

I have been in Guiones for 3 weeks and this was the best meal so far. The ceviche and snapper were perfect. My boyfriend ate their salad and he never eats salad! He got the lamb and really enjoyed it. Service was very friendly and quick. Will probably go again to try their wood oven pizza.

At someone's suggestion, we tried Le Bistrot and we were not disappointed. We started with the Ceviche Peruvian and it was excellent (large enough to share).
