Don't be fooled by the look of the place. The kitchen is way above the level you might expect from a nice looking but kind of rustic, simple food shack.
The menu only offers about half-a-dozen main courses: Roast Chicken, 3 kinds of Tacos, Peruvian ceviche, Fish & Chips and Lomo Saltado but the quality and taste of every single item is just great. Sides and deserts are excellent as well.
My personal favorites are the Peruvian Ceviche, the Lomo Saltado and the Fried Yuca.
Service is very careful and friendly.
I live in Santa Teresa and this is my go-to place. I just love it!

Cheap but delicious tasting rotisserie chicken, and tasty desserts(passion fruit cheesecake is highly recommended)
Rapid service and polite helpful staff. Perfect for a mid day or post surf snack.
Other than chicken or veggie, the menu options are limited and it's road side location means it can get a bit of noise and dust
