First, no air conditioning so is an open place with a nice balcony. You are greeted with a cup of chicken soup. No bread, you get "frituras" or empanadillas de bacalao (catfish turnovers). Menu is written... More

In fact the decor is what makes along with the food this restaurant so very special. The service is friendly and they make you feel like family. I love the place and... More

In love!!! Food was fresh, tasty, and you felt like it was made with love. The staff was attentive and kind. The decor made it a nostalgic "back in your grandma's home" feel. Prices are low, food delicious, will come back every time I am in town! I had the patitas con garbanzos with platanos and a garden side salad.... More
