We came here based on the positive reviews given on TripAdvisor, and overall left satisfied. The place is very clean and has a unique ambiance to it. The staff are friendly and attentive. We ordered two Fiordo Sandwiches which are basically Vegan burgers (4,500 pesos each), and one orange Juice (3,000 pesos). The burgers were delicious and of a decent... More

We came here for a quick rest stop after a heavy meal.

Small restaurant with lots of wood decoration. Menu with dishes from the region. Delicious desserts. Lakefront restaurant with nice views. Located at 400 meters from the main plaza. Average prices.
