Nice cafe located on the malecon just a wee bit north of the Cuale River. We ate lunch here twice outside under a canopy....a great place to people watch. The food was good and so was the service.

I have eaten here a few times over the years. The food is never a disappointment. I had the guacamole and it never disappoints. The restaurant is a great location to people watch, have a drink or two and some great food.
