If you're trying to avoid the expensive food on the beach, head to this restaurant. Great, friendly service, tasty chips and salsa, and amazing black beans and enchilada verde that I cannot stop thinking about. After trying restaurants in town and on the beach, this...More

I went to visit with my family and we enjoyed it. They served us a big portion for an accesible price. It's a bit crowded so you have to be patient. We totally recommend the place:)

We got there an hour before they opened in the morning so we could watch a sporting event. The staff was amazing, setting up around us and offering us drinks. The breakfast was amazing.

We came here afterhours,so its a good place to have dinner after your local bar. We ordered a pizza and a pasta, but the pizza didnt have a topping supposedly included. The pasta was ok. They took like 35 min to bring our order.

Very good choice for food after visiting the ruins. Much better than the restaurants in the shopping center next to the archaeological zone. Very good drinks too.

There's better food nearby but the place is a nice spot for a drink although the area lacks charm and is quite touristy (annoying European musicians setting up stall for ten mins of noise to make a quick dollar). Quite expensive for the food quality...More
