Argentinean
Mamalila is a restaurant based on gastronomy of the Argentine Patagonia. specialized in meats and a select variety of wines. We offer a relaxed atmosphere in a house more than 100 years old located in Cartago. It has an internal patio with a wood stove to enjoy the heat of the fire. We preserve the name of its first hostess, Mamalila. Whom along with Piquín, her husband, her daughter and their two children, spun illusions and adventures among its walls.

This house keeps telling stories, now that of the dream of two friends from different cultures; Sebastian originally from Argentina and Michael from Dominican Republic who with descendants of "Mamalila" the first hostess of the house, made Cartago their homeland and this space a place for meetings.

En general me gustó el restaurante y la experiencia. Dentro de los puntos a mejorar a mi parecer podrían estar el tener un menú más amplio (no había lomito) y buscar un mejor lugar de ubicación del músico ya que si bien es muy agradable, hay dos mesas que están muy cerca de él y esto puede resultar un poco incómodo para ciertas personas debido al volumen.
