This is a family-run restaurant located in the garage of a local house in a small neighborhood. The food is excellent and it has very reasonable prices. We had their lunch special, which included a nice steak and large food portions for less than $10 per person!

Also, their location is good, as it is fairly close to the Sabana and La Uruca area. The restaurant is very popular amongst locals and I highly recommend it if you want to have an authentic home-style experience.

My husband and I love to explore and find jewels in the rough. This was it. The ambience was eclectic. Exactly what you would like to find to experience the true local culture. Charming, ambience plus and the food was wonderful. The owner/ chef was amazing. Highly recommended.

Absolutely fantastic lunch in a unique (at least for me) setting in the backyard of a house. I think the chef can be a star at some point because the meal we had was very well executed. Had the daily special with salmon. Chicken and beef were also options. Two choices with the salmon: octopus or mixed seafood. Went for the mixed, which was a few each of razor clams (so good), green-lipped mussels, normal mussels, littleneck clams, and a bit of octopus over a roasted, quartered potato with seasoning. Could eat this over and over again. Best backyard service every and the chef is very accessible and visited our table a few times.

Speaking a bit of Spanish would be helpful but you will still get by. The location is really in a residential neighborhood but our Uber driver found it on a map. Just look for the red grates and garage next to an empty lot. Getting picked up was a bit more of an adventure but managed to work it out.
