It took 1 hour to get our food and was wrong. Took another 25 mins to get it right. The food was ok, nothing special . Very nice atmosphere and seating . Avoid if you are going with kids and if you want super good quality food

We had one of the best pizzas ever. Service was good, atmosphere was very nice, love the tree growing in the middle of the restaurant. A bit pricey but must say it was well worth it.

Aweful coffee and watery eggs. Over priced. Tourist trap. I haven't tried the ice cream that everyone is raving about.

So I have been here enough times to say the service lacks consistency. The food is not impressive though it is not as bad. Honestly what I have to say is that this place is located in such a good spot of Liberia and they can't take advantage of it, instead they go and let the place wear out. While... More

Very nice restaurant with friendly service. The owners spoke perfect English and the menus were in English also. Nice outdoor patio under a large tree. Lots of vegetarian options available. Definitely recommend when passing through Liberia.

We were a group of 7 so we tried a few different dishes. All were great. Pizza and the fettuccini primavera were both lovely. Frozen piña colada was very authentic as was the frozen mojito. No complaints. Good size portions. Would go back again!!!

We had two dinners at this restaurant while we were in Liberia recently, and enjoyed both. The staff were friendly and helpful. The first time we both had steaks, which came sizzling on metal platters. They were excellent, though the salad was a little disappointing...simply a mound of torn lettuce with little else mixed in. The vegetables would have been... More
