This restaurant was recommend by our Hotel staff and it was very good. Well prepared and served. Very busy place for lunch and dinner and we were still served quickly. I love eating were the locals eat and it was worth it.

Both Nacional locations are very busy, particularly during lunch hours. The food is very tasty and well prepared. The service can be slow during peak hours. Clientele mostly local business people and office workers.
