For less than 15-20 USD you can get a full meal in this restaurant. The owner treats his customers well and the place looks really good. Compared with nearby restaurants you pay more than twice the amount for the food only.

We were recommended this restaurant and were delighted with the ambience and the meal. The restaurant is situated in a well kept leafy courtyard, and inside there is a large wood fire and interesting artifacts everywhere. We loved our visit.

The restaurant is in the old home of Simon Bolivar. He liberated six of the countries in South America and he wrote one of his most famous poems here. So there is a lot of history in this building. The restaurant has mood lighting and...More
