This café is off the beaten path in the NW, and we are so happy we found it. The food is excellent, the menu is quite extensive and the specials are unique. We were there on a Monday night, and understand there is live music on the weekends. Would definitely return!

We used to live in Bolivia so were excited to find a restaurant that specialized in South American cuisine, even made reservations. We were seated and waited and waited, read the menu several times, watching the server flit from other tables to other tables kind of circling us as she socialized with customers....not a bad thing really until she finally...

Last Thursday hubby and I decided to dine at Blue House, one of our favorite South American cuisine eateries that we've been dining at for more than 10 years. Sadly, that was probably our last visit. The owner/manager was the only "front end staff" acting as bartender/host/server on a busy Thursday night. It is always busy here yet he does... More

Unique and delectable dishes that never fail to surprise my pallet. The menu is not overwhelmingly large, but offers choices for all tastes. The wine list is fabulous. A must if you eat here is the sangria! The South American décor and live guitarist/singer make for a very relaxing evening with your foodie friends. You will probably need a reservation... More

We went there on a Friday night to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant was quite full, in spite of the winter roads. The atmosphere was lively and we were seated at a table for four which allowed us to sit side-by-side and see the singer on the stage. This restaurant is as authentic Latin American as any I have eaten... More

Crowded when we visited but service was prompt and attentive. I had cevice, soup of the day, lamb casserole and lime cake for desert: all excellent! Reasonable prices. Clean washroom.
