small intimate place where the chef, owner, host gives you attention, makes good recommendations and serves one of the best meals I've ever had. I would strongly recommend making a visit to this restaurant. Try the Pate. It was delicious! And the pork tenderloin.

Great attention and suggestions. Two waitresses and owner/chef have great service. Small place with daily specials. We had a nice dinner together a group of ten.

We went there for dinner primarily as it is close to the Tica bus station but we were also curious from positive TA reviews. They are all right: the food is extraordinary in quality and preparation. No wonder as the owner worked a long time as a cook in embassies. The onion soup followed by a pork filet with mashed potatoes was outstanding. Don't ask hin for the menu, just ask him what's best today. Highly recommended place!

Thank Fronson
