The atmosphere was good. Families with children were eating there, though it was a little expensive. Our meals were ok, but not outstanding. We didn't go back.

Nice for dinner with a large group. They sometimes have live music which is fun and also have good desserts.

We had lunch and dinner there and while the food was OK it wasn't special and cost more than other places in town. Service was just OK tending to a little slow. Menu was the usual South American choices.

For a bit more money than last night's meal at Mi Ovalito we got about 1/2 the quality, 1/3 less ambience and 1/10th the service.

I had the shrimp ceviche for appetizer and the grilled shrimp for my entree. Both were prepared perfectly and very flavorful. The space was attractive, too.

We loved the food, it was fresh and well done in every aspect! Highly recommended! The meaning of "SISA" is flower. Personally, I can tell that the cappuccino was one of the best I ever tried (and I have tried a bunch, Italy included). Enjoy!
