We went here because it was close to our hotel and seemed popular. Food was okay - not bad and not especially great. Out of 5 meals, we liked the patacones and fried chicken the most.

We went here based on the recommendation of a cab driver and had a delicious meal. Service was a little scattered as the place was busy but definitely worth a try.

Just down the street from my hotel, great ceviche and beer! Sat outside and enjoyed a quick lunch. Cheap too!

A decent meal for decent prices. However, my chicken fried rice was heavily oversalted! The service was polite. We liked it.

Nice restaurant on first floor of shopping center. Very good food for fair prices. Very friendly staff. I can recommend Arroz de la casa, a rice dinner with shrimps and all kinds of meat. Dinner is served fast. Also the juices and milkshakes are very...More
