I highly recommend this restaurant for a typical Mexican dinner in town. Friendly waiters and nice ambience plus the food is really good :)

Such a great food, every dish we ordered was extremely delicious. Service is great and portions are big so think twice if you ordering big ceviche:). You see people taking food away in take away boxes, because they realise they ordered too much and food...More

Service is not the most friendly, but the food is good and price resealable. Ceviche of octopus was delicious. Fish delicious too. The menu is not very variable, but what they have is good.

Our Taxi driver Alex took us here after visiting the ruins. Had fresh Sea Bass and Habanero Salsa/Chips. Best lunch of our trip....and super cheap. Service was great.

We had a variety of dishes, each incredibly flavourful and perfectly prepared. Seafood was very fresh. The restaurant was rustic and didn't specifically cater to tourists - which I love, because when its full, its because the food is good! Huge portions and reasonably priced.
