We had lunch here. I would not recommend it to anyone, even when the food is cheap. But the place is so dirty and basic, and the area around it has foul smells and you can be victim of pickpockets and muggers. It's sad that...More

Went during the new year holiday. Paid 25 dollars for a not so good food in a dirty ambient. Many people asking for money while you eat. Do not recommend.

My girlfriend and I came to this part of town to see the the fish market, which was closed when we arrived (mid-afternoon). Although there was a policeman in the plaza, we were definitely being observed by sketchy-looking people. As another reviewer wrote, the smell...More

I went with my fiance looking after a different place for our lunch. Looking perhaps for some culture and certainly some fine seafood. Luckily we were looking for lunch and not dinner as the place is located in one of the most dangerous part of...More
