This comfortable family-run restaurant has some of the best food in Livingston. The service is quick, but every meal comes out looking and tasting like something special. They have a number of sizeable breakfasts for just Q20 (about 3USD), and the French toast (coconut bread French toast stuffed with fruit and covered in cinnamon sugar... WHAT) will blow your mind....

You must try the shrimp curry. WOW!!! The region is known for its shrimp and the chef/owner really put a great plate together for it. Coco loco's and coco frios are also SWEET and a great way to wash down the meal. Let me up that anty; do not leave without washing down your meal with a COCO LOCO:) Also,... More

Spent Christmas Eve in this restaurant with some friends many years ago: still remember it as the best dinner of my life. The tapado is absolutely amazing (the dish itself is amazing, but in this particular restaurant, it's simply off the charts). The breakfast is also really good. You CANNOT go to Livingstone without trying this place.

A really cute small place near the beach. I had the Devils Shrimp, which was very good. Bu the prize winner was the Tapado, a fish soup with complete crabs, shrimps and a lot of other seafood. She absolutely loved it. Prices we're okay, definitely not cheap which you might expect with the looks of the small restaurant (2/3 tables... More

We were the only customer in the restaurant, and we really enjoyed our dinner. The food was cooked on the spot and the tapado (local stew made with fish and coconut milk) was just delicious. The owner was really friendly. Overall very nice atmosphere and authentic food.

The curries are really good. It's on the opposite end of Calle Principal from the dock, and is a bit of a hike at night (it gets quite dark). Service was great.
