I love to eat fish but most of the places serve it deep fried, in Iscuande I tried the fish in coconut broth and grouper wrapped in banana leaf, both were perfectly seasoned and prepared. My teenagers had meat which was also cooked to perfection....More

When the owner herself is not in the kitchen, the food is ok, but not more, and the service friendly, but incompetent. It has seen better days - as the whole area around the Plaza de los novios.

Margarita is this place soul, she's always taking care of the dishes and the kitchen. Very nice selection in the menu incredible tastes from the Pacific Coast. Don't miss the cazuela. Christian is a very good host, staff all also very helpful.

The food is very good and the service is great, the owner was attentive all the time. The waiting for the food was a little long but it was worth it. It's located in a very nice walking street.
