Really good restaurant! It's a small one but the food is really nice and the prices are unbeatable. I had the keperi. Instead having it with rice with cheese you can ask for having it with a little of majadito.

This restaurant is in a very old building typical of Santa Cruz many years ago. It is very spacious with a lovely courtyard and furnished typical Santa Cruz style with lots of artifact around. The menu it typical foood of Santa Cruz some of the dishes are pictured on the walls should you not understand the menu. The service is first class as is the food and the price is very good less than $5 a meal it is a simple basic place but excellent
