We coincidentally ran in to this place. It is ran by a family and they are really nice. Everything they cook is from their own garden and tastes delicious. The whole place is made from 100% recycled material. Greetings

Very cool laid back atmosphere. Food takes a little long to receive but worth it. Had the veggie burger, fries and salad- all terrific. Had a soup on another visit- it didn’t have much flavor and texture was a little too grainy for my liking....More

We had the plantains and the tamales and both were excellent! The plantains were SOOOO amazing with their home made hot sauce! Everything on the menu looked great. Slightly pricier than other restaurants in Banos but worth it!
