This is an awesome hangout place just for the view alone. Mid to late PM is probably the best time for coffee, wine or a brew, although their beer selection was not great. We had a couple of appetizers which were good for the price. Someone had the soup of the day (cream of potato) which was unfortunately watery and... More

A group of us went here for lunch. Known for its fondue, there are other menu items that are tasty. Service can be spotty - one member of ur party wasn't served until everyone else had finished. But the views are worth the drive!

I heard feedback of this place and I had to try it on my own, so I took the risk of bringing 2 of my friends/clients and my partner with me to a)find where the restaurant was and b) see if it really was that great. Bottomline... Way better than expected! Location: It feels like a long trip, but truly... More

This place is one of our family favorites. Now first, important to bear in mind that the attributes are that of a destination. It has one of the most spectacular views in El Salvador. As mentioned in other reviews, it is always cool here and sometimes even cold. The other attribute is the amazing hospitality. This is a family run... More

This place brings to the visitors hope and peace. We were welcomed by Don Miguel Araujo who is a great musician and he plays for all the guests live during the coffee time. All with a great view of the beautiful north mountains and volcanos of El Salvador. This place is worth to stay for an afternoon!

The view on the sunset is simply awesome. Went there with friends yesterday and we enjoyed our diner. Food was excellent and service was fast enough (central america fast, this ain't mcdonald) and very professionnal. A must see place if you want a nice relax moment and great pictures.

The location, ambiance, climate, and views are one of the best in the country. However, the food leaves much to be desired. We arrived there for a late lunch and the place was fairly empty. When looking at the menu, prices were similar to other very-good restaurants in the city and with similar dishes so we went ahead and ordered.... More

Visited during on a weekday, with a 10 person party. Even though we were the only ones there, the service was extremely slow, more than an hour wait. The food was fairly good, but overpriced. The awesome view and weather was what saved this experience.

Description
Cozy and natural environment with Swiss (Fondue, Raclette), European (Risotto) and fusion cuisine with Salvadoran (Swiss Pupusa), with the best views of El Salvador and soft live music from the 60s/70s, and cool mountain weather because of its 1,250 meters above sea level, makes visiting this small gourmet restaurant a live experience. Do not miss its wonderful sunsets! An ideal location, being 30 minutes from either San Salvador or the El Tunco Beach.
