I was only passing through for the night and had a walk through town in the afternoon before heading out for dinner in the evening. The buildings are very unassuming from the outside and Sabe Rico was no different. At firs the chocolate shop threw me off and then when I walked through to the back it felt like I was in someones garden - but scattered arround in their own little corners were tables. Great atmosphere and lovely gardens. I had a fantastic vegan gluten free meal - with a guacamole starter and hybiscus drink. I found the lentil stew hit the spot and left very satisfied and motivated enough to wtite a review!
I cant compare to anywhere else but when I left I thought back to 2 American girls I saw with a domino pizza box in their hands and thought to myself they have come all this way and are missing out on a great experience - all in the shadow of a volcano.
Cons: I was eating alone, cant give it 5 stars
