I normally never write negative reviews, but this one deserves one. Can be we had a bad day, or the chef did, but regardless we did not have a good experience. The staff was fairly friendly, but the food was poor. Overcooked and tasteless.

Basic tourist restaurant with spotty service. The fried plantain were deep fried and rather dry. The local stew was tasty but rather heavy on the tripe.
