Friendly family serving a blend of French/Italian food with original drinks. Our pasta was cooked al dente the way Italians do it (grazie!). The only drawback was the limited menu due to it being the low/green season. Otherwise, it was perfect.

Recommended by the owner of hotel La Diosa (Marcello)....and it didn't disappoint. Really great food. Owner was gracious and welcoming. Nice change from the Carribean food usually offered in Cahuita. Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.

The wife and I ordered the specials. She got the lasagna, I got a grilled mahi fish. My fish needed a pinch of salt, but it was otherwise grilled to perfection. The server gave me a grappa after the meal, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
