I've visited this place twice, on both occasions it has been just a day trip and we have done horseback riding on the volcano, which I would recommend to anyone that's looking for extreme adventure, and a wonderful experience! The first time we did not stay for lunch, but the second time we did, what a mistake! There were 6 of us, and we each ordered either the grilled lamb, or grilled goat, which they claimed it's their specialty, since this is a goat and sheep farm! The pieces of lamb and goat we got were horrible. I can only describe it as the "desperdicio" the parts you would normally throw away, the bones and hide. The waitress was very rude, and she had a very bad attitude! When I complained about my meat they offered no apology, and they didn't offer to bring me a different piece. They were actually very rude and dismissive. I complained a second time and told them I should not be expected to pay for this horrible food! The manager agreed not to charge me for the main dish, but he still charged me for the soup, which was included with the meal, and he still offered no apology! They were actually "offended" that I would say anything about the food because as they said "no one had ever complained before!" To make matters worse when we got the bill, we realized that they were charging us $25 a plate for that monstrosity which they called "meat". Disappointment does not even begin to describe my experience!
