I was hoping to be wowed. I would say it was very good. The place is beautiful but I have a sensitive nose and it smelled like air freshener. The service was very good. The prices seemed high for the area. I don't think I will go back even though I enjoyed my meal.

Great restaurant in an unassuming location. Nice menu with a good selection of authentic and "modernized" Honduran fare. My primary disappointment was that the "fresh" fish wasn't local as it was flown in from Central America. Since we live in a coastal town, there is never a reason to import a fresh catch. Support local farmers and fisherman whenever possible.

We frequently have lunch here and had dinner for the first time recently. Due to a delay with their seafood delivery, they were out of couple things, but the experience was still lovely. Great place for a special occasion. Don't expect to be rushed - the place is slow and relaxed. Chef Mayra is the best!

We had a delightful evening with two good friends. The drinks were well made, the wine accompanied the food very well. Appetizers included the favorite house salad (excellent), the polpo (octopus), mussels, and pupusas de queso. All were outstanding! Our two friends had salmon. They asked for it to be gently cooked, not overdone. It was perfect! We had the roast pork. It was melt in your mouth delicious! There was no room for dessert but they do have some great offerings.
Our server was Kai and if we could give him six stars we would!
If you want to get away from a “steak and potatoes” menu and are a tad adventurous give this place a try. It is a lovely little gem!

From the moment we walked in for dinner with our daughters (8/12) we felt welcomed. We had read up on the menu and were already excited about trying the food. Everything we had far surpassed our expectations. The wine recommendation (wanted a red with the 2 adult fish entrees) was spot on. When we come back to town we will be back!

Excellent unique food and flavors. Definitely a fusion food experience of central and south American cuisine. A one of a kind gem. Fancy but not fussy. Service was excellent. I would go again certainly.

I live 20 minutes from this restaurant and I didn’t know that it existed. It is a beautiful small place with very warm decor. Gentle Spanish music played in the background. There is a small bar and bar service is adequate. The service (Kai) was outstanding! He knew the menu and could explain the specials. In general the food is imaginative and presented beautifully. My wife’s grouper was moist and seasoned well. My friend’s salmon was overcooked and a bit dry. My octopus was tender and delicious. The conch soup was a different story. I love conch, but this conch was tough and rubbery like undercooked tripe. My wife loved the black bean soup and our friend loved the bacalao croquettes. One dessert was shared and was excellent. The total for 4 appetizers, 2 entrees, 1 dessert and 4 adult drinks was just shy of $200.
We will definitely go back and give it a second try. The owners deserve it for bringing such a beautiful and creative restaurant to our community!

Found this place through OpenTable as we were stuck over the weekend on a business trip. I was tired of the hotel bar food, wanted something a bit nicer. CH did not disappoint! The food was Outstanding and the service was over the top. The ambiance was quiet elegance. Could have been romantic had I not been with a work colleague.

We both had salmon dishes, each with different sauces. My biggest regret is that I didn’t try the house sauces, placed on the table, until I was nearly done. We had an Argentinian cab from Ruca Malen that was superb and very reasonably priced.

Great meal.

What an amazing restaurant. The food is delicious and the service impeccable. The Pastalitos are the best I’ve ever had and the roast pork melts like butter in your mouth. Just a wonderful dining experience!

Outstanding ambiance as you are met at the door buy a matre'd with a warm greeting and smile. You are seated in a large but not noisy dining area. The décor is subtle and well appointed with Spanish art.
The menu is relatively simple and there were three specials of the house the night we visited. The waiter was well versed in the make up of the specials and offered recommendations to our party.
The food was Fantastic! Every dish was better than the next as we traded tastes around the table. One of our party had expressed a distaste for onions and the chef prepared a "signature menu dish" excluding them so that person could enjoy the entrée.
The flavors were very complementary and the seafood and chicken were very fresh and tender.
Prices were fair for the quality and ambience. Drinks, wine, and sangria were especially value priced (I appreciate a restaurant that doesn't try to make a killing on Adult Beverages).
The restaurant is a little off the beaten path but well worth the effort to find. We drove from Orlando to eat here and the drive was well worth it.

I’ve never left a review but this place wowed my girlfriend and I from start to finish. Food, drinks, and service were all impeccable. Definitely worth a stop, even if you’re in the Daytona vicinity. I appreciate the requested dress code and child policy too! Also, the chocolate bread pudding is to die for, you won’t be disappointed.

I keep expecting to be disappointed because, after all, this IS Holly Hill. But as usual, everything was superb. It's a little pricey, but worth it. And I really appreciate the fact that the noise level is not bad. I really hate restaurants where you can't here you dinner partner's conversation without yelling. Also, after the first visit, the Maitre D always recognizes us and greets us like old friends, even though we only go every couple of months. And he has always had an excellent wine recommendation within our stated price range without trying to upsell. Oh, did I say the food was excellent too? And very unique.

Daytona Beach felt like a wasteland. Every restaurant was a tourist trap, over priced and pretty poor quality, until I found Chucherias Hondurenas!! I was speechless a year ago when we stumbled upon this hard to find but worth every minute eatery. The waitstaff are unbelievably attentive, handsome and friendly, genuine and proud of their restaurant. The chef brings her all to the table with authentic dishes, fresh ingredients and wonderful ambience. Got the chance to visit again this year and again no disappoint here. Same staff, same amazing product. Don't miss their pupusas stuffed with corn and cheese, pair it with the octopus salad, tender and beyond tasty. Main course, fish of the day was perfect along with a chocolate bread pudding topped with peanut butter ice cream, to die for. I hope this little restaurant continues the tradition of genuine deliciousness, Cant wait for my next trip to Daytona Beach!

Location and food are fantastic! Sergio and team were very accommodating with our 8:45 reservation - they close at 9. The space is also beautiful with conventionally framed trusses and a large coquina fireplace. Highly recommend.
