We are the local chicito and a fish dish. With a beer came out to be 35 dollars for two. Things are expensive in this part of the South America.

Great service and good food! It was just across the hotel so we went and we had a great dinner, it has tables outside and the weather was great for this. Very good food if you are a meat lover.
