“Convenience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Good food and location, not too pricey. They have a good "tipico" food, and an american breakfast not too shabby.

“Great Ambience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013 via mobile

Our tour took us here for breakfast on our way to Nicaragua. A great choice! Good food with very good choices including typico, fruit plate, or an American breakfast. They were all delicious! And the ambience is fabulous located in an original old historic building. Highly recommend and pricing is excellent also!

“Tried it On a Hunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

We saw the tour bus parked here and decided to try it for lunch as we were on a tight schedule on our way to the airport. Sat outside on the front porch and chatted with two lovely women from Austria who offered to share their table with us. I ordered the seafood plate and it was outstanding! Clams, mussels, two kinds of fish, calamari and I think, abalone. My husband ordered the shrimp and rice and like that too. The portions were very generous. The wait staff was very competent. Would definitely eat here again.

“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2013

I love having plantains with my meals. I miss that the most about Central America. They are yummy. The breakfast was good, coffee was good.

Very convenient location. Friendly and nice people. Food was great as well. I asked to borrow their phone to call our hotel and they even help me dial the hotel. Thanks.
