The pub is OK. Reservation is a must. The music is nice, also is the long bar. Sometimes, it hosts Latino dance nights. The restaurant is located at the roof. It's tiny. The dessert is delicious

If you want good music and not at all talk with people going there with you because music is extreemly loud ok. eat and drink before you come. There you will buy a drink and do not drink it.

I donno why El Gardel is listed as a restaurant, although they do have food but the main attraction is the lovely Latin music mixed with some oriental classics and the warm/friendly atmosphere. Been there hundreds of times and will always be one of my best dancing/good times destinations.

I am not a big fan of their service, but they have great Latin nights. The drinks are good despite the fact that you need to work hard to get the waiter's attention if there is a big crowd.
