We had breakfast here a few times and the amount of food you get for the price is alright. The English breakfast is heavy duty and the American breakfast with vegetable omelette is made with frozen veggies. The Continental was my favorite, best bang for your buck :)

Came here for drinks and a spaghetti carbonara. Excellent service, good and filling food, chilled vibe with surf movies. Great value too.

They have a large menu to peruse, which made it a little annoying that the server came over 5 times, in 5 minutes. Give me a chance to read it, please! (then took forever to bring my drink order.) Got my meal order completely wrong, but basic ingredients, chicken & mushrooms, were right, so we'll just call it a anybody-can-have-a-bad-night... More

Great food, nice staff, relaxed atmosphere. You just have to try it. Breakfast: I can really recommend the vegetarian one as it mainly consists of wonderful fruit, fresh juice, and bread with jam. You will not need lunch afterwards.

Good spaghetti - it can be ordered with many different sauces and comes with a soft drink and garlic bread. And this package costs 12 soles - great deal! Add this to the 10 sol happy hour drinks - 2 for 1 and you have a tasty meal with good drinks for really cheap. The service is very fast and... More

Bad experience and not recommended. There is an older woman there with short blondish hair who is racist. They have a sign outside that says something like “Need Volunteer.” It was my understanding that volunteers get free room and board but I didn’t know so out curiosity after I ate there I asked about the sign. The woman described above... More

I got the English breakfast for 10 soles that came with juice, coffee and a good sized portion of food. Service was quick when I went. No fuss, no muss.
