“Excellent Drinks, Super Fast Wifi, Perfect Location”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

After being in the jungle for a few days with no wifi, we decided to come chill here and catch up on emails, etc. They have very fast internet - my pics were uploading to Facebook in seconds! The location on the main drag was fabulous - lots of good people watching, including an argument between two local girls vying to braid one gringos hair.

We tried several of the drinks - mojitos, caipurina and pina colada. All were mixed strongly and quite tasty. We also had the local Garifuna speciality, Tapado soup, and it was very delicious. A combination of whole fish, unshelled gambas, and crab, in a coconut and curry broth - yum! Portion size was huge and it was served with coconut bread.

The service was a little slow, but we weren't in a hurry, and I didn't care for their bathrooms at all, but I still think they deserve a solid 5 for the overall experience.

“Best Coffee and wi fi in livingston”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I've been coming here every morning for breakfast and to check my email. The wi fi connection i great, the coffee is the best I've found in Livingston and the breakfast is your standard Guatemalan fare, I like the omelettes.

“Reliable”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

A little bit on the expensive side for Livingston, but the grilled fish was excellent. It was the first restaurant we ate in Livingston and we went back on another day. Sopa de pescado was a rich experience with one whole fish in it. Has Wi-Fi connection. One of the few restaurants which accept credit cards in this town.

“Good Enough”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Food was OK, and service just what excepted.Food could seem a little pricey compared to other places, but drinks are just as cheap as anywhere else. I would consider it like a "Sport Bar" kindda place. Although is very clean, and is located right in Main Street, easy to get there, and in a great clean Spot. Decoration makes a difference. But, the best thing, is that that they are one of the few restaurants in the area that has TV with Sky, you won´t miss Soccer Liga Games.

A little restaurant full of tourists. The fish was good and fresh, the service in english was ok, but the price a little to much for what is worth! Free wi fi
