This was a great place for a tasty lunch. A good way to try the local food. The restaurant is set amongst other shops, and we enjoyed shopping after lunch. Very friendly proprietors.

This is a great place to have lunch. Try the bistec ensebollado - was one of the best I've had! Excellent find - and minutes from the beaches. It is well worth a trip.
