This is a wonderful small home restaurant with the kitchen at the front and a nice small garden at the back, the owner is welcoming the customers and continuously checking the tables, this is always a good sign of a good place. The burgers were just fantastic (with the cheese inside the meat), a lemonade to die for and wonderful... More

I am a burger fan from Texas and have eaten many burgers, but none come close to the one I had in the alley restaurant La Santa Gula. Oh,... More
