Sought out this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were so glad that we did! The restaurant is charming, cozy, and has an overall vibe that you might just be visiting old friends. The owner greeted us when we came in (we were there for a late lunch so there wasn't anyone in the space yet) and told us we could pick a spot. We went up to the third floor and grabbed a nook by the window. It was perfect.
We weren't terribly hungry, so we sampled a bunch of small dishes. You could hear and smell them being cooked downstairs after we had placed our order. Enjoyed cheap but decent beer and wine and admired the decor, which was really eclectic.
The food was excellent. We had locro de papa which was a light soup with nice subtle flavor. We also ordered humitas, a fried plantain ball stuffed with cheese, and fried yucca (so good!).
The reason I loved this restaurant was simply because of the charm. The owners seemed to go through great lengths to furnish the place, but nothing ever felt trite or forced. And, for what we paid (less than $20 with tip) it was such an amazing value for the quality of food we ate.
