Worth a visit, packed when I walked in at around 8pm, I didn't have to wait too long before I got my dish.... More

I had a good soup, fresh fish... More

Not eaten here but been a few times for a drink with friends. It is basic in style and surroundings but has a good atmosphere with a diverse clientele. Very entertaining to sit and watch life on the streets with numerous people trying to sell you anything and everything. A good change from the sterile environment of the nearby hotels... More

If you stay at Epic Sana Hotel this restaurant is very well located, just across the street. It is a convenient option to get something to eat or to have a cold cuca beer.

Service is friendly and attentive. The food is fresh with good portions. Kitchen can be a bit slow. Above all the joint has a good vibe with a diverse clientele. I recommend it.
