I had a fried red snapper with salad, it was delicious! My wife had lomo in caribeno sauce, and my son had fettuccine alfredo. It was all excellent, big portion as well.

If within 20 miles of Talamanca, do your tummy a flavorful favor by treating it to a plate of delish fish and a tall glass (just like from the old soda fountain days) of pure liquified pineapple. Wood tables and chairs and open to breeze...More
