This is right on the main road, so it's easy to find. The food here is delicious, particularly the herbed chicken. We ate lunch & this is a Christian location, which was refreshing. Service was excellent as was the food. Prices about $6-12.

I think this is THE place to go when you are really hungry! This place is designed to accommodate large tour groups during the day, but it is rarely crowded at night, which is when I go.

I had a fried red snapper with salad, it was delicious! My wife had lomo in caribeno sauce, and my son had fettuccine alfredo. It was all excellent, big portion as well.

We had both lunch and dinner at this restaurant and were not disappointed either time. We had shrimp and battered fish - both tasty. We love open-air restaurants and this one was right off the main road, easy to spot and easy to access. Tables...More

If within 20 miles of Talamanca, do your tummy a flavorful favor by treating it to a plate of delish fish and a tall glass (just like from the old soda fountain days) of pure liquified pineapple. Wood tables and chairs and open to breeze...More
