“Good lunch option”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a good lunch here in this nicely decorated small place.
We tried their mixed seafood rice dish and found the portion size to be enough for two persons. The service was quick and attentive. Also appreciated that we did not have to wait for the check.

“Good food”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

This place is so unassuming as the patio has a limited number of outdoor seating. However, the food was great! We ordered a rice dish with octopus, which was basically a fancy fried rice dish with octopus. The octopus was cooked perfectly and the rice had great flavor! I had the spaghetti with seafood which I thought was going to be in a red sauce. However, the dish came in a cream sauce and had lot of seafood. This place serves large portions so you may want to share a dish with someone.

Cost:
- Rice with octopus - $10.50
- Spaghetti with seafood - $13.50

“Nice decor, decent food”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Visited for lunch one day as I'd walked past a few times and liked the name and the painted walls... I was after ceviche; they were out of the camarones I asked for (though this inspires confidence that what they do offer will be fresh and of reasonable quality) so I went for a mixto. This was ok but not outstanding and came with some slightly chewy chifles -- it tasted fine, but I must admit to having had better quality and larger portions elsewhere in town during my stay. This was just a once-off so who knows, other menu items might fare better!

“Great food”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

This place had the best food that we could find in town.
The risotto was to die for.
We ate elsewhere but kept coming back every day, even if it was just for the ice cream!

“Good budget restaurant”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

This place was just a stroll from our hotel, so we decided to give it a go.

The food was quite good and the plate size was abundant. We had a plate of pasta bolognese and ceviche de pescado.

The pasta was actually quite good and very very tasty.

The ceviche was alright, not the best we had but it was good.

While this place doesn't have much ambiance, if you are looking for a budget place to eat with abundant and good food then this might work you.
