Another walk in, PSS just gave us a good vibe as an old school seafood restaurant in the heart of the old city. Our instincts proved us correct... Dubis, the owner of PSS who has an infectious laugh and excellent judgment, steered us through dinner and even got us a good deal on emeralds sold next door! I had the... More

Tourist trap. The food is below average for the price and the staff is not correct: they steal the propona to the tourists and lie about it. It is a shame as it gives a bad image of the city businesses. Avoid this place.

We had been looking for a place to try cazuela de mariscos, and finally got to test it here. It's probably the best we'll ever have!

We loved, loved this spot. And the wonderful people. Super friendly, super attentive/nurturing service. We love them. Have I said that? Food was always tasty and reasonably priced.

The service is also really good. The Shrimp cebiche was ok, but the fried fish with patacones and coconut rice was extraordinary. The restaurant has only six or so tables so it might be tough to get a spot at popular times.

Stopped at 3 places to eat (all were closed for lunch) before the driver dumped us here and couldn't be happier! Small dining room, casual atmosphere, friendly service and a POWERHOUSE kitchen. Was expecting a decent meal, but was pretty blown away.
