This is a great place, constantly changing menu. We are always pleasantly surprised when we eat here. At least twice a month. You will enjoy this place. The location in my opinion is not great but it is in Poblado, easy to get to. Check it out El Herbario worth it.

Tasty food, good service, nice ambiance. Try the risotto, the rabbit & veggie we're both delicious. Went around 7:15pm on a Saturday no wait for a table.

I was actually looking for a good vegetarian restaurant so I order a soap and a salad. Both tasted excellent and the service was perfect although thee wasn't many guests when I visited The atmosphere is a feeling of a very exclusive living room and the location is good an a back street abad from traffic and noise.

Even though this is a bit of a swanky place, we went on the early side because we had our baby. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us even bringing us a highchair and a toy for our little one. Service was great and food was delicious. Definitely recommended.

The menu is wonderful and varied and the presentation is stunning. While our Spanish is limited Clarissa, our waitress was very kind and helpful. The interior design is very unique and accommodates large groups. While we were there, there was a table with 30 people for a family reunion. The portabello mushroom was stuffed with goat cheese and topped with... More

With its high ceilings and West Village loft style design and feel you just hope you will fall in love with this very chic and romantic setting. My date and I got there early and to the right is a long couch with about ten two person tables facing the couch so my date sat on the couch and me... More

This was a great choice, not too far from Parque Poblado. The atmosphere is striking - a little dark, but elegant. I was there on a Tuesday a little after 7, and started put as the first customer. Octopus appetizer was spectacular. The salmon with corozos was out of this world. Service was a little slow, but beyond that, it... More

First to start with the overall impression, the place looks ok tables in wood, fancy. What is missing for me is first tablecloths or placemaths since they just put the Cutlery straight on the table while basic food and health regulations do not permit this. Seems funny to me since they have a nice napkin which they could use for... More
