An amazing hot house envirnonment which grows tomatoes 24/7 x 365 days, only for local consumption, they do not export. Computer controlled heaters control the temperature in whar can be a very cold climate. Highlight is the crusty bread served with fresh tomato soup!

We stopped here on our own accord (not part of a tour group) for lunch and were not expecting it to be such a busy, touristy popular place. Instead of waiting 30 mins for a table, we opted to order the soup from the bar...More
