I thought it would just be for coffee etc. However, decent menu with various selections. I had the Beef Empanada and Beef Croqueta. They were good, but served cold, ask for them to be warmed. Coffee was good. Closing, place is good, but empanadas not as good as at BOLSI Restaurant also in Asuncion.

Mediterranean style menu. I had a great jamon serrano sandwich. God, was it good. Service is excellent. There is a terrace. Simple yet Attractive setting. Not overpriced.

Located right in the center of the old town, this simple comfortable eatery with extensive menu choices has something for everyone. We decided to go the pasta route this evening, ordered first a set of bruschettas, 8 pieces in 4 different varieties: aubergine, roasted peppers, tomato & basil and serrano ham with parmesan slivers - all were very good.

The service is good and they have vegetarian options for their pastries. The pastries taste good although they are a bit expensive. I particularly like the chard pastry. Their breads are good too. One can eat there or order food to take away. Mostly I order food to take away since it can be quite crowded at times.

Very good price for great quality! The best cheese cake I had in ages! Lots of healthy food to choose from and the bread its also fantastic. If you take your food away ask them to warm it up as other wise its never really hot.

I went there for lunch and the choice of food was very limited. The quality of what I got was also very, very limited and could not finish my schnitzels, which were too dry, or the beans salad, which was drowning in vinegar. Service is pretty indifferent to whatever happens, including when you call them, or if you like what... More

I've been in a couple times for lunch and dinner, and although the food is pretty good, don't go if ever you are in a hurry. The service is rather slow despite the device they leave at your table to signal your waiter when you are in need, ready to pay, and ready to order. Every time I have been... More
