I ordered the tacos de papa mainly because I'd never heard of them before! They were great, served with guacamole and lettuce. The salads are also good, my dining companion assures me; the micheladas are perfect and the bread is tasty. I'm only sorry I'm...More

Street side restaurant that opens at 6am and stays open until 11pm. Decent breakfast and lunch, all fairly good and consistent with no surprises. Good coffee and licuados. Generous portions as well. Good place.

We ate here after our surfing lessons. I had a stir fry veggie dish that was delicious. We had a little issue with my wife's food not getting ordered correctly. I'm sure that was due to the language barrier.

Terrible food. This place has good reviews because of the old owners. I wish I had known, save yourself the trip. The bakery isn't bad buuuut that's it.
