Nothing fancy, but we were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The food came out quickly, was cooked perfectly and was inexpensive. The fresh tamarind juice was delicious. Would definitely recommend.

Where locals and travelers mix with Expats and tour organizers. Seems like it is the center of many things in Puerto Jimenez. Cold beer and a variety of menu options made this a great stop for us while in town... twice.
