Pleased with this restaurant. Very good breakfasts and lunch. Very freshly prepared. I think it's just a little pricy however.

Great lil spot! Inexpensive, yummy lunch and dinner menu and it's conveniently located in front of the Coope grocery store entrance. They also serve breakfast Fri-Sun. Try the coffee. It's served traditionally and is delicious.

Everything we ordered was delicious, from the shrimp tacos to the Caribbean chicken, burgers, olla de carne, picadillo de turno, all of it excellent. 7 of us (3 children) ate four $80 including drinks and had much to take home.

This is our third time here and we have been thrilled with our meals. The restaurant is very clean and the owners/staff couldn’t be any nicer. Very clean. We will return many times. You must try their banana flambé. Delicious!!!

The pantacones are first rate. I had the cazuela mariscos, and it was delicious and reasonably priced. Pin a pleasant setting. Our server was very good as well. The problem was that we were the only guests. It’s next to Remax and easy to overlook.
