Lovely family run place. There's no menu you just pick from what's made. Enjoyable experience, very casual but a good meal and fairly cheap. Perfect if you were alone or with a few friends. The freshly made juices are a nice addition too.

Three of us went, and it felt like a bit of an adventure. The antithesis to the resort-esque restaurants lining the beach front. "What you see is what you get" says the friendly restaurant owner as you enter. And indeed, the options are laid out...More

Don't expect gourmet or air condition or great ambiance, but if you want dirt cheap and real authentic Mexican dishes check it out! You see that locals crowd in among those few adventurous tourists and there are plenty of reason why. They may serve a...More
