Absolutely delicious pre-train breakfast! You must try the hot chocolate, it's mind blowing:) Food was fresh, well presented and 2 people ate a breakfast for 57Sôl which is about 18usd. The great service, back garden and resident cat made the experience!!

Great food, wonderful dishes, excellent service. Good for all meals or just a drink and a snack. You don't have to stay at the hotel to enjoy this restaurant.

We had hours to kill before the train so we sat here and had some beers and then an expresso and hot coco. We sat for almost 2 hours and they didn't kick us out which was very nice of them!
