Two hours wait for very basic food with lot of excuses and no apology ??Horrible and Unaceptable Simply bad planning, bad staffing, extremely loud music( mostly from Colombian cumbias or vallenatos instead of traditional local )place have a privileged great view and might be a hot spot for only drinking purposes but the restaurant was awful.

Good food, hefty portions. We had the 'medio familion', which includes the rice of the day cooked over a wood stove and we can select 3 out of 4 types of meat, servings good for up to 4 people. The service was quick and courteous and even though it was a long trek from the metro area (about 1.5 hours),... More

We decided we wanted to skip the usual suspects and go to a smaller place and this was it. The atmosphere it's what the doctor ordered. Nice and cool breezes, a wood house with an extensive balcony and... More

Group of 9. We ordered the carne ahumada, longaniza and carne frita platter with arroz mamoposteao. The longaniza was THE BEST!!! The mamposteao rice was yummy as well, nicely seasoned. The flan (dessert) were homemade and had good flavor as well. The view from the balcony is very nice. Great restaurant to go with family and share the food and... More

Recommended by a local for their Carne Ahumada, which was very good and reasonably priced. The rest of the menu looked typical and rather fair priced. Service was OK.

The views from the restaurant are amazing. It has many antiques that are very nice. The service was good and the food was delicious. It is kind of expensive but it was worth the time and money for the experience.
