I just loved the crepes and the seafood! Wine was great also. It is quite expensive for little barra, but absolutely worth it!

This is by far the best restaurant food in Barra de Navidad !! Owner chef Veronica has a diverse and delicious menu and Eduardo, the captain of waiters, excelled. The food is fresh, prepared with love and careful attention to detail. Highly recommended.
