We had lunch here twice. The food is really good and the courtyard has a very friendly atmosphere. The waiters speak a little English, enough to order food and make clear what you want. I can highly recommend the tuna sandwich and this restaurant.

This place serves all sorts of different foods--a wide menu--but their juices keep me coming back. The combinations are exquisite and they serve it in a tall glass.
