We had vegetarian quesadillas which were very tasty while enjoying the sunset. Met the owner who is a very kind person. There is a hotel belonging to the restaurant which will be opened soon.

We ate breakfast here twice during our short stay in San Ignacio. Food was delicious, portions very generous, the breakfast burrito was massive- took half home. The covered outdoor tables offer nice views and cool breezes. Staff very friendly. Highly recommend.
