The restaurant is clean although the decor is fairly sparse. None of the wait staff speak English, but then again it is we who should attempt to order, at least, in the local language (Spanish). There is a good selection of crab offerings. The crabs...More

We really enjoyed the variety of tasteful dishes. La corvina diabolo is a must try. Also the decoration is nice and topic related. A nice and very good place to go.
