The meal was unfortunate, to say the least. The restaurant might have been decorated by the author of a YA vampire novel, but it's quirky enough to have attracted us in for dinner. The server sat us at our table, but quickly forgot our drink...More

I dropped into La Bruja whilst cruising past and had one of the best meals of my trip there. In addition to the dining the venue really is something special. Worth a visit!
