Visited this restaurant after a recommendation from a dear friend. This is definitely a place on the road less traveled but worth a visit. You do need to go through some winding and narrow roads to get there so be prepared. This is a small restaurant but we found the food to be very good. Service was a bit slow... More

We visited the place with a group of 9 members. Although, the waiter told us 45 mins of waiting time, no one take us the order in about 2 hours. Well, we finished eating in chillis.

We went to this beautiful spot with a large group of friends. The food and service were excellent and the view beautiful. The place has a rural aspect and plenty of room. Don't forget to try the mofongo.

Horrible!! Terrible service and the food wasnt good, we asked for no pork no shrimp and they didnt substitute for anything else, even when the server told us they would. Everything was cold and over priced for reheated fried food!! Really disappointed it was a good restaurant but its quality and service has gone in a steady decline.
