We had lunch here after a tour of the NP. It was basic food, and a nice fresh fruit drink. Friendly staff- clean cutlery and table- no idea of the cost, but it was fine.

Don't order the nachos. They were barely edible and had some kind of a squeeze cheese from a tube on them.The fajitas were ok, but didn't taste like any fajitas I've ever had.
