This place has a delicious menu. The food is the best in the area. It's located past the town of Portobelo with beautiful luscious, green scenery views. It's great for large groups and families. Pizza, pasta or steak... You won't be disappointed!

On the road to Isla Grande and few minutes from Portobelo you can get great pizza, steaks and superb freshly baked for your order European style bread loaf. Prices are reasonable, service excellent. Owners are from France / Italy. Not to miss apple pie and order garlic bread with your food. The restaurant only open Thursday – Sunday.
