Small family owned place, everything made to order fresh - nothing already prepared, not even the sauces. The owner was very engaging and friendly. We had a great meal - lime soup (sooo good) lobster with coffee sauce, fish - we loved it.

Flavorful and nice ambience. We had the fish with the passion fruit sauce and some empanadas after a long bike ride. Enjoyed the street scene of passerbys.
