Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 July 2013

I was taken here for lunch. Rustic decor was attractive, especially in the semi-exposed garden area in the back, although we were annoyed by flies.

An extensive menu with many vegetarian options, but lots more. My friend had ravioli stuffed with spinach and cheese in a light tomato sauce - she loved the dish, but was overwhelmed by its accompaniments: a very large (and delicious) salad and a variety of steamed vegetables.

I ordered chiles rellenos, which was not Mexican style. Instead it was a roasted chile dulce (not picante) stuffed with a relleno whose main ingredient was pejibaye (a palm fruit). The chile was not breaded and fried, but serve plain and was really delicious. It came with rice and beans, as well as smaller portions of steamed vegetables and salad.

I ordered a not too sweet (a good thing) lemonade with ginger (another option was with pineapple).

The menu was extensive and creative, with some dishes inspired from local recipes, others from Italian or Mexican dishes.

Worth going back!

Great restaurant! Haven't found a lot of restaurants in San Pedro that have a lot of veggies and they did. Also I am gluten free and the owner spoke enough English to help me with my meal. It was just fabulous. It's roughly $8 for an awesome dinner

We loved this restaurant, it was definitely our favorite place in San Pedro. It has an amazing atmosphere, and its a beautiful building. Seriously, the bathroom is the prettiest place I've ever been--its like a jungle in there. We all had really good food (the portions are HUGE though), and fresh interesting drinks. You should definitely make this a stop on your trip.
