Fantastic restaurant with high quality food, beautiful setting, and great service. It took me only 8 years to try this place and I sincerely regret not coming before. Entree will set you back $14 - $18 but is completely worth it. Dishes eaten included. Grilled chicken with tamarin sauce - served with mash potatoes and a side of tamarin sauce... More

A remote restaurant with bungalow resort. They serve traditional meals. Very tasty direct from an outside charcoal grill. Take a Jersey as you are actually sitting outside under a porch.

I have lived in El Salvador for 6 years, and this is one of my top three restaurants. Situated on the road between Ataco and Apeneca on La Ruta de los Flores, this popular restaurant is a must. Great food, lovely gardens (including a Vivero) and great attention. The Sopa de Tortilla, the Parillas for various people and the Fillet... More

The venue as such is okay. Because there are limited good quality options to eat in the area you can say this place is like an oasis. If you haven't found a better place where to eat, yes, eat here... it's the safest choice around. Food is expensive, drinks are cheap. Not much I can add of this place.

We went there on 12/26/16 with a couple friends, and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The service was excellent as well.

I am a regular at this spot. They create elaborate salvadoran cuisine. it's not an American diner type spot, but if you wish to have a unique culinary experience that is both good and different, then definitely go and enjoy yourself. It's inside a colonial era house, walls are made of some sort of clay and brick, Its old-school ok,... More

I visited El Salvador with very little knowledge about its touristic attractions or possibilities. One of the things that surprised me in a VERY positive way was its gastronomy heritage, similar to Mexican but with their own twists and of course dishes, from 'pupusas' to shrimp coctails. But the TOP OF THE TOP during my 2 weeks visiting (and eating)... More

This place is a great way to get a flavor for local cuisine and ambiance in a high quality and secure location. Food is great value and the plates (even kids menu) are very generous. After or before eating enjoy on site games and petting zoo.

It was good, not great. Also be careful with the cooking of your steak. Ordered it medium rare got it well done. Besides that great staff lovely place.
