For the ceviche

The restaurant was located in an industrial area, so as we walked there, we were unsure if we were walking the right way ... When we did get there, there was a long line up, even at 3 PM.

We trusted the waiter to bring us a great range of dishes, and he delivered - he was very knowledgeable and friendly! The ceviche of the day and the paella were... More

The music is a local style that adds to the festive ambiance of this neighborhood restaurant whose reputation extends beyond borders. A bamboo pole ceiling and concrete exterior walls with green bamboo growing on the inside makes this a perfect place for lunch. (It's not open for dinner.) They don't take reservations but if you arrive at noon getting a... More

We ordered two appetizers and wooded fry rice. Overall the food quality is good but wooded seafood fry rice is too salty to eat. After lunch, we were thirsty whole afternoon.
