Nothing super fancy here, just good, hearty food. Country fried steak and mashed potatoes with a cold beer really hit the spot after a day hiking VNP.

Stopped in for lunch, and had a great meal. Cute place, friendly staff and the food is worth driving there for. The lunch plate, yum.

We all had different burgers and they were all delicious! The service was wonderful and quick. Gave us more time to check out the Volcano.

We had a fabulous breakfast here - ok not the most modern environment or spotlessly clean and as it is in the middle of a rain forest you will always get bugs. If you have had a bad experience why do you go back.
