Just so-so. The chicken is really good, so if your getting a whole bird you'll be happy. If your visiting and order a meal, then you'll get the sides that are not so good. Is it just me, or does cilantro ruin a salad? The refríed beans had some extra ingredient that made them taste way too sweet. The fries... More

The roast chicken is completed by using coffee tree wood. the chicken is excellent. the site is great and I recommend travelers go there. They also sell a hot sauce there that is made in Belen, very tasty!

Food was great and the service excellent. We ordered chicken, sweet plantains, refried beans, patacones, guacamole. Chicken came with salad and tortillas. It was too much food. Next time, we will order less appetizers. Coffee was excellent-(cafe con leche).

They cook over fire. They use coffee wood for their fire pit. The flavor is outstanding. This is a casual place good for family. The price is good.

Small place, centric in Belen close to bus station and train. Has good local food besides the chicken. Everything bought here was tasty and prices normal. Service ok. If hungry, in Belen and in the mood for chicken, then this is the place to go!

Visitors love to see the chickens roasting over flaming roots of coffee trees behind glass. Great smells and tastes at very reasonable prices with ,many options for those who prefer to wander away from the iconic roast chicken.
