Took us a while to find this place but it was amazing. Giant empanadas that were to die for and the coconut pineapple octopus ceviche type dish we had was amazing!!! Wish we had more time so we could go back there.

Note - it's located on the second floor of what looked like a hostal so it's tough to find. But if you ask around someone will point you in the right direction!

Don't let the hole in the wall appearance fool you, this restaurant has really delicious fresh food. Service was a little slow, but worth the wait for fresh ceviche and fresh Thai curry. Some of the best food we've eaten in South America for great value. We saw the chef run to the store to buy fresh pineapple for our dish. Worth a visit!

The staff are really helpful and friendly, the open air restaurant creates an authentic atmosphere and looks out onto the bustling streets of montanita.

Our food was superb and tasted really authentic (and delicious).

Excellent restaurant and would definitely recommend

With only 2 people in the kitchen they made authentic, amazing Thai food. The empanadas are huge and the best I've had so far in South America! Went back multiple times

This place is not obvious to find, on the second floor through the narrowest staircase but it is worth it. It is a small place that serves great food. Unfortunately, the night we were there, they had no wine, so beer and juice it was. We had a giant green curry empanada and shrimp in peanut sauce, both absolutely delicious. It is a bit long but everything is made from scratch with fresh ingredients so it is well worth the wait. Sit by the window and people watch while you wait or look at the electrical wires for a scene out of Hitchcock's The Birds. For a dinner with simply good food, we recommend Tiburon.
