Not a flash place but food cooked fresh to order. The coconut sauce is delicious and you can ask for extra spice if you want it. The home made spicy pickled vegetables were hot, hot, hot. Not too expensive but a nice place to try...More

We had an adequate breakfast at this little hole-in-the-wall cafe. It was not remarkable in any way but easy and low-key.

Our group of 4 stopped here for a quick lunch. Each of us had a different version of their rice dish. All were great! The ceviche to start was so fresh and flavorful. Also, the owner was very nice and hospitable.

Looks are deceiving. This place isn't much to look at, but the food is great. Awesome ceviche. The snapper was fresh and tasty. The fish filet (I think it was marlin) was fresh and served with tasty rice. Bata boom boom!
