We had wonderful salads and fresh salmon or halibut, very yummy. Plus good burgers for the non-fish-eaters. Friendly staff, nice surroundings. We would like to come again.

The hamburgers we ordered had some of best meat ever... lean, moist and great tasting. Their homemade strips of sweet potato are incredible! A little bit of a wait, beautiful day sitting outside... portions are huge... highly recommend!

I dont think they have website yet ,but i tell you its the best food in town by far. Best Burgers(about 16 different), Seafood(Halibut and Salmon), outstanding seafood chowder. Nice ambiance and alfresco dinning.The owners work it every day and the Peruvian touch to their recipes make it a real delight to eat there.
