Although a bit off the main tourist route this small restaurant serves good Mexican food at reasonable prices. The sharing dishes offer a good variety. Service is personable. Situated near the student area the clientele is friendly and adds to the atmosphere.

Seriously, this food was incredible. My cook was from Ecuador and made the most amazing food. It was some of the best latin-inspired food that I've ever tasted. The quesadilla (I know that it sounds boring) was truly amazing. The cook said that he used...More
