Most of the restaurants at the Mercado are rather expensive. We almost decided to leave, but then we saw this nice little place. It is small but cosy and staff is very friendly. The food was good, nice fresh fish, and it's very affordable.

The restaurant is very small, but the atmosphere is very cosy and the owner is very welcoming. The food is very tasty and reasonably priced. Try to sit downstairs if you can.
