I listened to some legal advice, my lawyer said try lunch at the Ciudad de David, he was right.
I can now recommend three high quality restaurants for lunch in David. Add the Hotel Ciudad David to the list that was Mosto Bistro and Cuatro. What makes it different is that Hotel Ciudad David is a high quality buffet. You can enjoy salads, soup, a choice or all of several entrees and desert, with a beverage. Today they had green salad, seafood salad, salad Nicoise, bean soup with ham, grouper, chicken cordon blu, chicken lasagna and toxic deserts.
David is evolving, there are now restaurants far beyond the typicos. Yes you can still have lunch for $2.75 in numerous place but if you want more than Arroz con Pollo, (Chicken and Rice) there are an increasing number of options. I rarely eat in a typico, more often Chinese or pollo a lena (wood roasted chicken) but for a treat I am finding myself enjoying better food, better service and more relaxing atmosphere.
You do pay for quality, it is $12 less the jubilado discount plus tax, $9.63 total and well worth it for a relaxing hour
