The staff and owner were very friendly, polite and welcoming. They helped me out with finding a place to stay and told me about the local area. The food was very delicious prepared fresh and very fast. Lots of seating in an open chill atmosphere.

Cold beer and casados were great. You don't want to miss the pork chops! Fish, rice and beans were good as well.
