You get what you pay for. This would not really count here as the food is so much better than the price suggests. The family really knows how to prepare steaks! ;-) And the milk shakes are even better than most of the shakes i had anywhere else in the world. In our 2 week stay, we almost ate there... More

This restaurant is easily my favourite place to eat on the island (and I have lived here for a year now), the food is ALWAYS fresh, with a diverse menu which is reasonably priced. I don't really eat a lot of meat however this is one of the only restaurants I willingly get meat, the steaks are amazing but the... More

Good spot to sit with a book and a shake. I tried a few and this is the best spot. Charming environment, family run, good food too.

We dropped into Che Pancho for a quick lunch one day to try it out. The smoothies were pretty darn good, made with real fruit and to your liking. We also had a sandwich and fries which were good as well. This spot was one of the more reasonable priced shops for fresh food and like most on the island... More

Tucked away behind the foliage of the Reef Cinema on main street the chickas in this tiny hatch serve some of the yummiest and unexpectantly fresh sandwiches, specials and of course smoothies. If your food schedule is full of cheap baleadas do yourself a favour and at least treat yourself with a yummy smoothie- SO delicious everytime!

We had the smoothies which were very refreshing. And the tuna filet, which comes with salad. Would go there again without hesitation.

Only ate here once and want to try again. Had the Napoleon schnitzel. Quite good. I need to return and try something else before I would recommend. Not much air flow so careful if on a stifling day if the heat gets to you. Daughter liked their smoothie.

Their smoothies are my favorite on the island and the schnitzel is great! A no fuss but delicious meal in a nice atmosphere!

I went several times during my week's vacation for the Grilled Tuna Steak, salad, and chimichurri sauce! The beef filet was delicious too! Nice ambience, friendly staff!

Took a late lunch here after a morning under the water. Had a choripan with low expectations. It was, however, excellent. Not the best you'll ever have but this is an island with limited resources. The chorizo was good, but the chimichurri even better. It was a bit picante which gave it a good bite. Washed it down with one... More
