We spent 2 night in Banos and were thrilled to find this Gem. Ivan and his wife were incrredibly helpful, They went out of their way to accommodate us.

Just like their motto states on their business card "Where attention is an art and eating is a true pleasure". We did not stay overnight so this review is for the restaurant only. The restaurant gives special attention to the service and dining is a delight as the family welcomes you and takes care of all details. We stopped in... More
