Good food and location, not too pricey. They have a good "tipico" food, and an american breakfast not too shabby.

Our favorite restaurant in Liberia closed, so on a lark we tried this. Had the chicken Cordon Bleu-outstanding, they got it crisp, without the cheese melting out-loved this. My wife had the sirloin tips in pepper brandy sauce--they were tender, flavorful and would order again....More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. Fairly extensive menu, tourist oriented. Friendly service, decent food though hardly spectacular. We shared the tortilla soup and each had the grilled tilapia, which came with two sides ($32 in total). The fish was fresh, but I found the food...More
