This is one of the best restaurants in Veracruz. An older establishment, but they know how to greet, serve and cater to their guests. Definitely the place to frequent for breakfast, lunch AND dinner.

Great food from a wide selection of seafood and beef (Argentinian.) Family friendly but not formica and plastic at all. a bit too noisy and bright for a romantic couples date night for my tastes, but the food makes up for it.

The breakfast there are really good because you can try the picaditas, gordas, and empanadas that are traditional in Veracruz. It's a small family restaurant, so do not expect someplace fancy.

I expected more. In other trips to Veracruz we went to eat there, now we returned and it is not the same. The service now is very low and the food was better, maybe the administration changed. The cost/value has it's disadvantages because you do not have something better in return. You can go but do not expect something great.

Best food in Veracruz, everything is fresh and made to order. Poor wine list. A little bit noisy.
