We went because the reviews on TripAdvisor looked really good. Food was "okay", however the service was exceptionally bad. We waited 30 mins to get a tea and even longer for a basic chicken & rice dish. There was also barely any people in the...More

We went there twice since it was very good. We tried the salmon ceviche, delicious. The staff seems very friendly wich gives a very good mood to the restaurant. Very well decorated also. The boss is very nice.

The food took around 40 minutes to arrive, because the staff had to eat first. When it arrived the order was not right. We had to wait again for another dish to arrive to the table. We ordered wine and the wine glasses were not...More

The restaurant lacks much of the infrastructure one would expect from such a highly-rated restaurant: the seating was mostly on stools with no back rest and one can't pay with credit cards! They don't have wifi either. The music was very loud and there were...More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide. We got the WOK dishes. I got the pulpo (Octopus) and my husband got the carne (meat). Holy HUGE portions! We definitely should have gotten just one and split it. This was one of the...More

Good music, snacks and drinks. A great place to relax after a day out and have a drink. Good prices, not too expensive.

The good thing about this place is the food and the drinks, however, I felt that the atmosphere was a bit boring, the night I went with a friend, there was a lousy animator and the band was terrible.
