I have been here twice. The first time I had a hamburger and the second time I had pasta. Both had great flavor. The menu has many options.

We liked the food so much the first night (hamburgers) that we went back the next day (lasaña). The staff is nice, the atmosphere relaxing! It is in the best neighborhood in Cali, San Antonio.
