The best goat, tostones and habichueles in town! If you want to try a really traditional restaurant this is the place to go. Close to Playa Dorada hotels. The beer is super cold! Presedente of course! Don't miss it!

Great food and service! We came for a late lunch (around 3pm) and they were still able to serve us. Really liked the conch (lambì guisado). Clean and had fans which kept the place coolish.
