The people are friendly and lovely, but from the food it isn‘t the best soda i ever visited. The food is partly made with the microwave warm, which one tastes natural. Sad, because the people are really accommodating.

Three of us ordered the Casado with different meat. They were delicious with some pickled cauliflower & carrots. My daughter ordered the nachos which was not what she expected, but delicious nonetheless. Their fresh fruit juices were quite tasty as well. Very pleasant service too!

A nice family run restaurant, as five vegetarians we had several options on the menu, the food was fresh and service was fast! Not much english spoken but friendly waitress service! Slightly out of town but great value.

The soda was close to our hostel and we were recommended to go there. Totally worth it! We actually went back the next day as well and ordered both times the arroz con pollo! Very good food, good price and run by a nice family.
