Excellent food with unique and fresh ingredients. We enjoyed everything we tried and it was nice to have a vegetarian option (tofu, etc). Only downside is restaurant doesn't accept credit cards and the atm was out of service.

Excellent food all around. Also have added swings to the bar since last year which are a lot of fun. Everything tastes great and the kids loved the PB&J empanadas.

Five of us just finished our meals and all agree that we just found the best food on the island!! Started out with sweet potato fries, then had the Chile stuffed chicken, a jerk chicken plate, Chile relleno and fish tacos: all were excellent! Sit back and relax and don't expect your food in a rush. I promise it will... More

Stopped here by chance for lunch. What a great choice The soy chorizo and tofu hash was excellent. Don't be fooled by to vegan aspect of this dish, any meat eater would devour it We also got empanadas and burrito and nobody complained. Great spot for sure. We will go back before we leave.

Very reasonable food and drinks. Appetizers were wonderful as were all meals here. Wait staff very good and friendly. Owner was there one day but they were closed for restock. She actually walked us to nearby place to get iced coffee.

Recommended to us by a local and would recommend to anyone. Stuffed chicken was amazing and such a big portion at a great price. Empanadas lovely and chia seed dessert great too (and healthy!!) Staff great. Along a very central busy street. Nice bar there too.
