“Special place for dinner and conversations about food.”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Wonderful small restaurant with a big heart, eclectic menu, first class service. Jorge and Angie are passionate about what they do: quality food/presentation, along with full explanation of what's on the menu in English by the very fluent, ever-helpful Angie. Jorge makes his own mole, which I did not see anywhere else in Barra while I was there. He was kind enough to show me his stash of dried chilis and tell me what each one was. He's also a Rotary guy involved in the annual chili cook-offs with awards on the wall to prove it. Sorry I will miss the cook-off, but look forward to eating at La Magnifica again... (Con: a few too many mosquitos)

“Jorge makes great food”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Jorge is a really great chef, he makes good food with fair prices and some of the most delicious sauces. A very good host, and if you are lucky to have Angie there too you will feel so welcome and cared for.

“Very Good I Must Say”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

The modest entrance hides a very charming back courtyard. I have too say that the Owner Angie and staff are among the friendliest restauranteurs in Barra. Offerings and varied and eclectic with unique dishes being offered including ostrich. Only downside is mosquitoes are sometimes an issue so come sprayed or Angie will give you some if you forget. Pricing is average , offerings and friendliness both excel. A nice choice and we'l be back again in the 2914 season more than once. Cheers
