It is so romantic to enjoy a dinner on the balcony of that place. The food is good, their Pina colada special cocktail is recommended. The waiters are very polite and speak good English.

Clean upstairs restaurant in bright white with lovely tables inside or out on the balcony. Food was delicious, mojitos very yummy. Great friendly service. A nice escape from the tourist bustle of Calle Obispo. Highly recommend.
