If you want great typical food from the region at good prices, this restaurant is excellent. The paiche a la parrilla was probably one of the best fish dishes I've ever eaten. The tacacho was excellent too.

Not bad, however not great. The Brocheta of fish was the only flavor stand-out! I thought it over priced and the volume of the large flat-screen TV dominated the brightly lit decor...

I went there one night to have some gator. Although this restaurant may not have the best atmosphere (it feels like a diner) the food is excellent and quite inexpensive.
