The pizza was awesome, any fish plates great! There is a tree right inside the restaurant by the front entrance. The owner came to see us both times we were there and chatted with us about food and how he got to buy his restaurant. Was very interesting. You can also see him cook behind a glass wall. Actually all... More

Went in for a couple of beers (at a very good price) and ended up having the best Flat Iron Steak I've ever had. Can't wait to go back.

The place is nicely decorated. It is situated at the edge of the old town near all the new development and a short walk to the two main bus stations. The place has very nice open air seating. The menu reminded me of the "Pan Asian" restaurants in the U.S. I saw quite a few American (locals) during lunch. What... More

I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of Jauja. I checked out this restaurant while studying at a Spanish school in Liberia. There were plenty of good options, but I decided to order pizza and I did not regret it! It was super good and I ended up with a pretty cheap bill because I didn't know it but... More

Melissa, I am sad to learn about your rating, since we work very hard to maintain a very good standard. We dont advertise as a vegetarian restaurant, however we do have vegetarian options, such as pizza, hamburguers, pasta, soup, and of course, salads. More than 10 menu items, which are vegetarian friendly, and if should have asked any of our... More

The open-air vibe of this place is wonderful. It's great for patio dining on a hot night, especially when there is a little breeze. All staff members are very helpful. And the wood-fired pizza is absolutely delicious.
