We ate the traditional fish dishes: with and without Bananas. The one without was a bit better. Fresh orange juice was of good quality. Service was nice, but the overall ambiente didnt leave a good aftertaste, wouldnt want to return, probably.

This is a great place to eat. It's not too expensive and the staff are very friendly. We have eaten here 2 times already. Simple menu but nicely cooked. The meat skewers are very tasty.
