While waiting for our appetizer to come out we watched as they cleaned up an area near us by sweeping the floor then sweeping off the table with the broom. If this is what they show the public on their sanitation, we can only imagine what went on in the kitchen. We promptly cancelled our order and left. I cannot... More

As you can say that, he was cleaning the table with one hand and in the other he held the broom, you were in the bar and he could not see well in the restaurant, the sequence of events can also come to see the cameras, And not give a wrong criterion without reason. More

We had Ceviche, Manchego cheese, Fried garbanzo beans, Oxtail stew and flan. My husband had some excellent aged rum. The flavors were excellent and the price was right.

My husband liked his steak. I had a ceasar salad that had way too much lemon in it for me, but my husband liked it. I tried ceviche for the first time and the lime was overpowering - I guess some people like that? The waiter didn't seem to understand us very well and we asked him for a box... More

Many choices covering a full range of prices. I had shrimp scampi as an appetizer and pork steak for dinner. The house wine was excellent.

Found this place on Trip Advisor... It is a little difficult to find otherwise. But so glad we found it! The breakfast menu was limited, but they were more than willing to take special requests. The server at the time, Tita, absolutely made this place memorable. Will definitely be back!!!

Not only was the service amazing but the food was even better. My 4 year old and I happened upon this cute bed and breakfast and enjoyed their restaurant for breakfast. While we didn't stay the night I would love to. Clean, well managed, and neat environment. Lots of history there. Food made to order!

We waited an hour and a half for our dinner. Salad came after dinner was served. Food was ok. I had the lamb shank which was a little too salty. My husband had the seafood paella, which he said was very good. I wish we had been warned before we ordered that they only had one chef.

Love to go to this place for the history of it and love the people there. We have only been on Sundays. At first food was good but last time we went, not so much. It is different though and worth a first time try

We stayed in the hotel overnight and decided to stay local and eat at The Whistle Stop which is downstairs. The food and the service were both excellent and I would recommend it to anyone. Authentic dishes prepared very well. Even the bread was home made. I was tempted to get the paella but opted for Lamb Shanks instead and... More
