I really liked the food and prices at this restaurant. They were really helpful and willing to adapt to vegan. Delicious empanadas with beans, salad, and tostones with pesto with a great price.

After kayaking we had lunch there. We had the fish filet which was fresh and well prepared. It came with mixed salad, rice and fresh frites or “patacones”. Plenty of food for 6 $ / each beer included.

Saturday and Sunday are pizza evenings, cooked in an awesome wood fired oven. Try the chicken and pineapple, you'll go back for it again, as we did!
