“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Eat here a couple times for lunch and dinner while visiting. Every time the food was amazing. Did not have one bad meal. The flan was the best I've had! I can believe this place wasn't very busy but I'm secretly happy to be able to get in and find a table right away. They were so sweet to pack us dinners for the following night because Good Friday a lot of the restaurants were going to be closed. We will be back!

“A Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Eclectic surroundings and menu with outside dining. Very pleasant and attentive staff. Fresh specials of the day for lunch and dinner. Food was fresh, well prepared and flavorful. We like fish and would return without hesitation.

“It's all about the food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

The place has the appearance of a rustic cafe next to a gas station. When you walk in the door the amazing aromas of the kitchen draw you in. My wife and I ordered 2 different preparations of grouper. They were beautifully presented on a bed of roasted root vegetables with a side salad. The fish was absolutely fresh and delicious. Friendly casual great eating that you don't have to dress up for.

“Tiny Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Tiny restaurant but delicious food. Only problem is they don't serve coffee or tea. The flatbread pizza with caramelized onions is incredible and prices very reasonable.
