It's a little place hold by very friendly venezuelian people. They serve a tasty south-american food. Soups, stews, meat and fish, everything's delicious. They are so welcoming and the prices are cheap when you take the menu. You have to go there !

We went to this place because of its reviews and we weren't disappointed! It was great food, cheap and lovely service. The only downside for me was that the beer was more expensive than most places in town - $3, whereas most places it's $1.50/2.
