I can't compare it to other pulperias as it was the first one I had tried, but I found it to be just okay, not outstanding. If this is supposed to be the best then I think I'll give the others a miss. I thought...More

We had some great meals on the Camino walk. This was probably one of the worst ones. Service was very bad with a cranky waiter. The Menu was very basic with not much choice or selection on it. They do not do a Pilgrims Menu.
