Our host Errol and Venita of La Pension suggested this to us. We visited one cold night with only both of us in the entire restaurant! Food was excellent! Chef served us some pumpkin bread with home made cheese which was nice. Recommended.

In most restaurants you would at least find one or two vegetarian options.
