This was my second visit to the restaurant. Last time was around 2 years ago and it was great. This time went with entire family (party of 7). My wife and I ordered Rissoto. It was WAY too salty, impossible to eat it. We had to return both entire plates. They did not apologize nor offer any substitution. And they... More

The food is prepared with local and fresh vegetables, species and meats. You can tell behind each dish there is passion, fun and good taste in its preparation and presentation. The atmosphere is non pretentious yet has a touch of class and is very relax. Very friendly staff and very knowledgeable Chef that loves and follows her passion for the... More

Ate dinner there with friends after hearing great reviews. Not overly impressed with the food and there were several service issues. We were a group of 4 that had three different meals. We were immediately shocked that the only vegetarian option was a salad...and the salad was brought to the friend who ordered it about 30 minutes before the rest... More

This is the spot for a more unique dining experience in Volcan. Could be perceived as a titch pretentious, but in a way its part of the experience. The salad was a bit too dressed and limp, but flavoured and presented beautifully and all the other items (menu changes) were delicious. Would go again to see what else was on... More

We stumbled upon Cerro Brujo after reading some reviews online, and, staying in a casita nearby, we decided to head there for an evening meal. We were pleased to find a small but authentic little restaurant with fantastic service, spectacular food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Although we were visiting with meat-eating friends who were delighted with their meal, my... More

My husband and I are unapologetically food snobs. We both are very good cooks and we believe in eating at restaurants where we can get food that we could not prepare better ourselves at home. The experience and meal at this restaurant was one of the top 5 meals of my life. To start, when we arrived we were the... More

What a wonderful expérience! A gourmet cuisine served in a resto sympatic lost in a small village. Chef comes to your table to exchange with you (she speaks English very well) and she is interesting and adorable. You will not want to leave. She cooks with surrounding ingrédients only and tells you that she keeps it simple. Using basic ingredients.... More
