Nice place. It was packed everytime we walked by it. The food was good, local stuff like rice and meat. The prices are considerably lower than in downtown Santa Elena.

Definitely worth a visit for a local touch and friendly service. The owner even gave me a little piece of cake to finish the dinner. It's a little out of town but I would recommend
