The cab driver suggested this place. For food he recommended fried whole fish and ceviche. We ordered those; added a beer and a michelada and were very happy with our choices. Very popular place we had to wait to be seated.

Wonderful, cheap ceviche! Wish we could have eaten here more often. I'm still not quite sure about their hours of operation--they might be closed on Wednesdays.
