Had a beautiful salad here....most unusual and tasty. I love it when a chef gets creative with salads rather that the boring lettuce, tomato and cucumber,, and the dressing? Lovely!

We ate here as a large group and received a warm welcome in this family run restaurant, the food was beautifully prepared with amazing side salads. This was a bit different to most restaurants with its own personality and character. Reasonably priced. Good service. Recommended.

This place is amazing, portions are huge, food is full of flavour. Service is friendly and are happy to answer any questions. If we were in the area longer we would have certainly gone back! You could easily miss this as it's above a shop.

Stopped for lunch while touring with Monkey Tour Costa Rica. Surprisingly good food even though the group was about 16 people and the price was reasonable. It is upstairs and hence not suitable for people with disabilities
