This is a fantastic spot! The food is great and big portions. The staff is very friendly and professional. The fajitas were my favorite. But the snapper is also delicious.

This is right on the main road, so it's easy to find. The food here is delicious, particularly the herbed chicken. We ate lunch & this is a Christian location, which was refreshing. Service was excellent as was the food. Prices about $6-12.

I had a fried red snapper with salad, it was delicious! My wife had lomo in caribeno sauce, and my son had fettuccine alfredo. It was all excellent, big portion as well.

We had both lunch and dinner at this restaurant and were not disappointed either time. We had shrimp and battered fish - both tasty. We love open-air restaurants and this one was right off the main road, easy to spot and easy to access. Tables...More
