We visited in the evening. We had prawn salad and red snapper curry both good. Attentive service. My only negative comment would be I wish they would turn the telly off and play some local music to create some atmosphere

Wonderful find, flavorful foods, fantastic fruit drinks and excellent service. Comfortable vibe, good value. Shrimp, snapper and chicken dishes were all memorable. (Kids’ hamburger was “meh”.) Highly recommended!

The staff was very kind, as we wanted to change a few things of a plate and they made it all happen. Organic chicken in carribean sauce was delicious, as was the patty de carne (empanada with meat). Prices were good!

I'm sorry, I'm not sure. We paid cash. If needed, there is an ATM near the beginning of the street (it's located at the end of the street) where the restaurant is located.
