Very wonderful experience in this quiet, historical town with a warm welcome! Small restaurant with lots of character.. Felt like moms kitchen with a gourmet chef doing the cooking! Food was excellent and exceeded our tasteful expectations. Waiter even brought out an added spice of peppers for my husband! Great setting and homey views! Prices were very reasonable!

This is one of my favorite places in Todos. Excellent mango margaritas to start your meal. Always fresh fish with tasty and flavorful sauces.The creamy basil sauce is what I usually order. The service is attentive and friendly.

Great margs, service and grilled fish with pesto. Loved it. Local decor. Recommended by a shop owner. She was right. Glad I followed her recommendation

A Casual restaurant located downtown in Todos Santos. Our food exceeded my expectation. I know better to judge a book by it's cover but I'll admit I wasn't expecting too much. I was wrong, the food and drinks were very good! Our service was excellent and our food very good. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again!

The food was delightful. Had a struggle to get a bowl of water for my dog. We sat at the sidewalk table because we had the dog but inside looked nice.

This unassuming, local and reasonable restaurant had the very best chicken mole in town. We enjoyed the friendly casual atmosphere and the excellent food.
