Imaginative food and ambience make this a fun and tasty choice. It is small and always busy, a testimonial to the excellent and reasonably priced food. Be prepared to climb a slightly steep staircase, so not advised for anyone with mobility issues. Otherwise go and...More

Not your quiet little romantic spot. Busy, noisy, and good food. Seems like fast table turnover so we didn’t wait long for table. Pomodoro shrimp hit the flavor target. Tenderloin was tough so 1 star off. Flavors were unusual and tasty. And you will get...More

Quirky place - note that you have to walk up a steep and narrow staircase to get to the 6 tables upstairs (so may not be good for people with mobility issues or kids). Food is very very good. Afterwards, we stayed at the bar...More

Get here early because it is extremely small but the food is great. I got a delicious steak, well seasoned. Go for menu specials-they're worth it.

Excellent service very cool place to eat. Great food !!! It’s a small place with like only 6 tables so don’t be afraid and turned away by the look of it soooo worth going.

Of course if you compare to western prices it's alright but by local standards, no local steps in to eat to say the least. For a meal out with your partner, expect between 150 and 350 Quetzales.

It may be tiny and compact... it also punches above its weight in terms of food taste, quality and service friendliness! We enjoyed a Caprese salad appie, before healthy portions of shrimp and steak burritos... we enjoy Mexican wherever we travel, and these are truly...More
