Went here for a group meal and was quite shocked. Maybe because we're veggies, but we paid a fair bit for a very plain and average meal. Unseasoned cassava and black beans with some plainish rice. Sad because it's great to support independents. The empanadas...More

Stopped in Pau Brasil for a cold drink whilst on a bike ride. Had the pineapple juice with mint and it was really refreshing. Not as pineapple-y as I would have liked but still tasty. The two women behind the counter were really friendly.
