The food is good quality and the portions are a good size. We had the tuna salad was huge and very good. The sardines and squid were grilled with real good boiled potatoes. The place is clean and service was good too. Great lunch.

How can you make a ham and cheese sandwich not tasting at all? A cheeseburger tasting awful. Even the coffee (of Tofa!) is bad. The waiters are busy but very nice. And you get free wifi. But if you want to eat something good (even...More
