We were in town overnight after a cruise and this restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff. Much to our delight it was fantastic. Great food (especially the churrasco), great drinks and great service. I would highly recommend this if you're in the area.

An interesting blend of different types of cuisine, but they are mainly Salvadorean cuisine, central American cuisine with a fusion of South American. Everything is very good. Cannot complain of the food or the service. Good atmosphere. nice to hang out at night.
