Good food but overpriced

The food here is tasty and in large proportions The service was decent The atmosphere was great with indoor and outdoor (open air) options Food is overpriced although this is a problem in all of San Pedro which serves an exclusive tourist market

My title really sums it up. We ate here two out of the three nights while in SPA. They have an excellent menu as well as an extensive drink selection. The service was surprisingly fast considering the high volume of traffic they receive. This place is a solid choice.

There are no "good" restaurants in San Pedro, just average tourist places, this one has large room, but their "so typical" open pits in the middle of the dining room, makes your clothes smell for a week. The food is OK, higher price than competition. I prefer the places on the main square, more views, more room.

I tried the poor man's platter, the cerviche, the pie and most of the piscos they offered. Everything was of excellent quality, cooked to perfection, yummy... More

We had the prix doze menu for New Years so maybe that had something to do with it, but the food here is not that great at all. My vegetarian entree had burned pieces on it and everything was super mediocre, especially since we payed $100 USD for each of us. If I had the chance, I'd go back and... More

The menu del dia is a good deal, starter, main, and dessert for 9000. Everything was tasty and the atmosphere was nice (wood fire, music, friendly wait staff). Creative salads.

It is located in the main street of the city. We had our best meal in San Pedro at this restaurant. No wifi, but the food is excellent.
