This is a great spot with a cool vibe to try some really tasty fusions between southeast Asian and Mexican cuisine. Vegetarian friendly! The service was great and the staff super friendly. Also a good place to try some of Puerto's micro brewery beer. We...More

Loved the cheese quesadillas and vinegar soy chicken in coconut milk. Not huge portions, so we ordered 4 dishes with 2 persons (the bill was around 1000 peso, with 2 rounds of drinks) Restaurant and art cafe look very nice, creative, and completely in gipsy...More

The lighting, fixtures, paintings, and whatnot set the mood for your dining experience. They have really good and tasty food though kind of limited variation. A sweets shop next door and also good selection of cocktail drinks. Go for the cocktail drink, I must say.

This is a really interesting place, the premises are very particular (we had dinner in the red room inside which i guess is the main room), we were served by a very polite and soft spoken waiter that gave us advice on what to drink...More

Went alone. Nice shopping center around. Cute little boutique next door. Sat too close to the bathrooms. Service was perfect. I liked the buzzer that lit up to get waiters attention. Food was delicious.

We went to this restaurant on 13 April 2011 and it had opened just a week beforehand. The decor, both inside and out, was novel and really tasteful. Food was delicious and service great. Even the owner came up and asked us personally how we found the food and service. I'd highly recommend a meal here!
