The food is good, the waiters attentive and the view of Fifth Ave. is interesting. Always had a good time at this restaurant and the prices are very reasonable.

Attention to detail is key here. Get the Ceasars salad which is made right at your table. The steaks are great and the Madre potatoes are a must! Super wine selection and they are wonderful at recommending without going for your pocket book.

We stopped off here for dinner on our Honeymoon. We were staying in The Royal, about a 5-10 minute walk away. We were greeted by a smiley lady outside who showed us up to our table. A friendly waiter then introduced himself and gave us...More

If you Google the restaurant and the name of the town you can access the menu and the prices, remember prices are in Pesos. We ate there in Feb, we had two courses each and a couple of beers - it was about £50 ($68 US). We... More
