Drove around for 30 minutes looking for this restaurant, the taxi could not find it. So, while I would have liked to try it out - I couldn't. Taxi driver said it was probably closed, but he was most likely just lost.

This is a great place to eat healthy, relatively quick service with affordable prices. A favorite lunch place for local business people.

I went with my suegros for Sunday lunch. I had the tortilla marinero. A little tasteless - I used up all the aji casero on the table! However, the prices were outrageous. The tortilla (basically an omelette) cost 13 bucks! Couldn't believe how expensive the food was.

The food is amazing, excellent prices for what you get, it's a place to come back for several times, you have to try the seafood viagra, or the rices, you'll love them

The restaurant is simple, all walls are written by the customers, the fish and ceviches are excellent, don't expect a fancy place, just expect good food at affordable prices.

It is tucked away but so worth the GPS. Parking attendant will help so don't be concerned about that. They food is fantastic, fantastic, fantastic! The only problem is that we stuffed ourselves trying everything. Go for lunch and don't plan on needing dinner.

The location is not the best, decoration very simple, but food its worthy of your time. The chifles with aji they serve you when you sit are delicious, sea food is well cooked and very fresh and they serve all kind of ceviches, encocados, arroz marinero, etc everything I've had is very good and prices are moderate.
