Nice atmosphere. The staff is friendly. Great location in the inner harbour. Quiet, out of the noise and traffic. A great place to catch your breath. Great lunch!

Came in by myself for nachos and a glass of wine. The nachos were pretty basic. Nothing wrong with them, nothing memorable about them. The service was very good. Someday I'll return to try a different meal, not just an app.

After a full day of exploring, we wanted an easy meal. Santiago's was quick and very good. I had the chimichanga and my husband had the salmon burger. We enjoyed both meals.
