Small in size, big in cuisine, perfect combination. If you wish for premium dining, seek no further. This is the place. Smart unusual menu (duck, lamb, seafood, pork, steaks), lovely wine selection. A top rated Bristo.

French/Mediterranean restaurant in San Salvador that actually surprised me! Small (call to make reservations if having dinner), superb service and fantastic menu. Full bar selection with liquors from all over. Had the ham and cheese plate as appetizer and then rabbit risotto as an entree and both were fantastically delicious!

Well located, at the heart of San Benito neighbourhood, San Salvador, the "La Gastroteca" restaurant was a very nice surprise: small restaurant, part of Clarion Suites, in front of a very busy boulevard, offering a nice terrace and cosy interior.
The best of it, its amazing food. It has an International menu based on creative and delicious dishes with elegant presentation. Though a bit pricey, it's worth it.

I've visited this restaurant lots of times and i've never been disappointed. I have loved all of the plates i've tried here, but definitely my favourite has been Tuna Tataki & the Gnoccis with Tomato Butter, no words to describe how much I love this plate..and the incredible desserts they have.

The service from the waiters is impecable and treat you very professional. The place is small but certainly cozy enough to have a very nice evening.

I love how they have new plates ever 1-2 weeks, so you can try a new plate every time you go. Definitely the best restaurant in El Salvador.
