The owners are locals who strive to offer wonderful lunches and dinners. The Sitio is very hygienic and the food very carefully and lovingly prepared. The owner, Suzanne, makes sure your food is delicious.

It was closed for weekday lunch. We went there and didn't even see a sign with hours. This is the restaurant's listed location next to Sagrado Corazón.

We were like kids in a candy store walking into El Sitio restaurant! You select the kebabs you wish to order from a glass cabinet and wait to indulge! The meat was really decent quality, better than I could imagine. We tried pretty much everything...More
