Every time we go there we don't know what to chose because they have wonderful plates. I will recommend papa a la huacaina as appetizer, ceviche or pescado silao and churros as a dessert.

This place has the best fajitas I've tasted. That is the only thing I get when I go there because I love them so much! They also have the best flour tortilla in the world. You've got to try it!!

We had a group about that size and they seated us! They gave us a whole section on one side of the restaurant. There isn't an area for parties though
