We visited the Old Conucu House for the first time this year and will definitely be coming back! It was nice to visit a restaurant outside of the high rise Hotel area. The ambiance was great, and the food and service was excellent!

We always stay with locals. They highly recommended this for great local food. It did not disappoint. Started with BIG beer (1 liter) then iguana soup and goat stew. Great service and atmosphere.
