“Don't miss it”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

If you are in the neighorhood don't miss it! Cold beer and friendly folks. On Friday nights the local artisans dsiplay their wares. The bartender's hair is perfect and worth the stop.

“Miraculous food for the location”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

Seemingly in the middle of nowhere springs this restaurant helmed by the friendly, but kind of intimidating Martina, a tattooed German ex-pat. She's quite a cook and manages to craft some quite tasty food in the middle of the Osa, no small feat considering just how far from anything like a well stocked grocery this is. I was actually here in Feb of 2006 but I am a new Trip Advisor member so am catching up on some of the more memorable places I've been to. I hope it remains as rustic, quirky and delicious as it was then.
