The move to Villa La Bella only made heaven better. You have to try the Sliders - to die for. Look for they sign "Beer so cold it will make your teeth hurt".

“WHAT IS THIS LIFE IF, FULL OF CARE, WE HAVE NO TIME TO STOP AND STARE.” That´s Slow Down´s concept. We offer you fresh, homemade, on demand, island-time, slow-cooking food so that you can get out of the fast lane for a while and allow yourself to enjoy our meals and what`s happening in front of you. We are anti multi-tasking and that ensures you the quality of our work. Our meals have an international blend: our European roots together with our travelling experience throughout America have given birth to a potpourri of flavors that you´ll see in our menu. Come and embrace the art of taking it slow. Press the pause button and SLOW DOWN...
