Casual, rustic and pretty - this is a great spot for a meal. We had the chicken with veggies and rice and it was truly the best chicken I've ever had. So tasty! We enjoyed our meal!

The food was cold, the water was warm. The rice and beans were good but the chicken was not amazing. Wasn't very impressed with the service either.
