We popped in here for a burger one night. It was quite busy when we arrived and ordered our burger. As we were waiting one of the ladies from behind the bar (presumably the owner) ran out in the customer area wielding a knife and...More

We wish we had read the reviews before deciding to eat here. This place has potential but it’s evident the service isn’t up to par. Menu looked good, but I was told (rudely) that the item I wanted wasn’t available. The next three items I...More

I had dinner there two nights in a row. The burritos are great and prices are too. I am really shocked to read other reviews about bad service because I had the complete opposite. It was actually the best service I had in E Nido....More
