I have had dinner several times at this restaurant. Every time we experienced excellent food and excellent service. The paintings are beautiful and Rosa makes you feel like home.

A old wooden house in the lively Ariapita Avenue, creole visual art (mainly from Haiti) and creole food. A lot of people, a pleasant service and prices that you would not consider high.
