The restaurant in about 30 minutes drive from San Salvador, well worth the trip. There are truly spectacular views from the top of the mountain range on which the restaurant is located. Food was great, cheese fondue was perfect as well as the desserts. The...More

This is an awesome hangout place just for the view alone. Mid to late PM is probably the best time for coffee, wine or a brew, although their beer selection was not great. We had a couple of appetizers which were good for the price....More

A group of us went here for lunch. Known for its fondue, there are other menu items that are tasty. Service can be spotty - one member of ur party wasn't served until everyone else had finished. But the views are worth the drive!

The location, ambiance, climate, and views are one of the best in the country. However, the food leaves much to be desired. We arrived there for a late lunch and the place was fairly empty. When looking at the menu, prices were similar to other...More

Description
Cozy and natural environment with Swiss (Fondue, Raclette), European (Risotto) and fusion cuisine with Salvadoran (Swiss Pupusa), with the best views of El Salvador and soft live music from the 60s/70s, and cool mountain weather because of its 1,250 meters above sea level, makes visiting this small gourmet restaurant a live experience. Do not miss its wonderful sunsets! An ideal location, being 30 minutes from either San Salvador or the El Tunco Beach.
