Comfort food: schnitzel with rostie potatoes, like my grandmother used to make...the chicken Cordon Bleu is one of the best in the Beaches... I have eaten there many times and was never disappointed.. even their little salad is worth going there for.. Thoroughly enjoyable

Great little restaurant just past the entrance of El Valle. The owners and staff are very attentive and friendly. The food is very good and the ambience is rustic and charming. A true gem tucked away.
