We went for a late lunch before leaving the country that evening. It is a classy and elegant restaurant, tastefully decorated, with gorgeous flower arrangements. The service was impeccable. As for the food, it is certainly one of the best meals we've had. The "ceviche" was perfect, with a subtle flavour. The prawn salad was equally fresh and subtle. For our main course, we had lamb in a fruity sauce and grilled octopus, Both were delicious. It was a perfect ending to an amazing trip. Don't miss the market nearby on Saturday morning. The Iglesia de San Jacinto is a gem, as is the Plaza de los Arcángeles, a short distance away.
