Delicious array of ceviches and really kind delightful service. We had the green mango ceviche and a cold glass of white wine. The manager kindly brought us plates to share the ceviche as we were not very hungry and just wanted one between two of...More

We had a wonderful meal in this small, unassuming restaurant. The service was excellent. The menu was creative. Everything was very fresh. We didn't feel rushed. Wish we could have experimented and eaten more!

Inside of this little restaurant appeared lovely and the staff was very friendly and helpful. My gf and I each ordered a cocktail, I ordered a ceviche plate and she ordered a cooked fish dish around 7pm. We liked it. By 11:30 pm we were...More

We stopped in for dinner here on a hot evening and it was the perfect meal. It's right in the middle of old town, so it was a brief walk from our hotel and the service was fast and friendly.

The place is small, with simple decoration and the menu can be confusing (being organized in two sections: "Del Hielo" and "Del Fuego" (effectively cold [ceviches] or warm dishes) rather than the typical appetizer, entree, etc.). But the service is first class (warm, genuine and...More

This is a hidden gem. Very small. Nothing fancy. Hole in the wall entrance . Big taste! Can they prepare fish ? WOW, they can. We started with Biche, seafood, white fish in green mango broth - a delicious ceviche. We then had Pescado Del...More

The restaurant has many fish options but as you know in South America and Central America meat and fish are the main items. This kitchen will work with you as long as they have items that meet your requirements.
