We returned to this restaurant last Thursday and were as delighted with it as the first time. Ordered the seafood paella and the grilled shrimp with sauce. Had wonderful garlic buns while we waited and were not disappointed with the meal when it came. A good size for both and full when done. Once again bathrooms were spotless. Since the big market is not open do not know how many visitors will go here but is certainly worth it. A bit of a wait for the meal but what a lovely way to spend your time watching everything going on the main street. You won't be disappointed!

We loved this place so much we ate there twice during our trip even though we were at an all inclusive.

The chicken was awesome!! Fried chicken was like nothing you've ever had before. Also the garlic chicken was very juicy and boneless skinless. The french fries were soooo tasty we got a few plates as appetizers. Also the plantaines with beef were very tasty apps. Meals were very reasonably priced and very tasty. Meals also came with desserts. The ice cream and sprinkles were awesome. The flan was also very good.

This restaurant is very clean and had great service. Its on the corner of Calle 18, which is very close to the main market stretch so its nice to end your day of shopping eating here.

Bathrooms were very clean, had toilet seats, toilet paper and soap!! Not alot of places did so this was a huge bonus.

We have never eaten off our resort before and since we were meeting up with friends at the market, decided to give it a try. With this restaurant being close by we chose it and are so glad we did. It is clean and pleasant to be in on a hot day. The menu had many choices and it was difficult to decide on something. One friend is diabetic and was easily able to find something. Food was plentiful and really tasted good. Service was fine and we never felt rushed. Price was great and what a really clean washroom in the back! Highly recommend here and will definitely go back.

My husband and I along with another couple went to this restaurant in January during our trip to Cuba. I had read some good reviews on the restaurant so we decided to try some local culture. The food was terrible (barely touched it - chicken not cooked) and the washroom (one) was deplorable. No toilet seat and a window that was open and looked out onto the bar section of the restaurant. Totally disappointing.

This restaurant has no ambiance. It's filthy and the menu is nothing short of repulsive. Overall it's third world SKUZZY!!!
It took our party of four less than three minutes to decide to adjourn to Parque Josone and it's variety of restaurants.
Don't go there unless you are thoroughly depressed and seeking a final shove to get you over the bridge railing.
