I ordered a trucha (trout on English I guess). It took way too much time, even though the restaurant was not too crowded. The dish was good, not the best one. I didn't like the long waiting time but I would come back given it...More

The style of food is generally old-style French. We went 2 days running. The first eday was excellent. We had the tasting menu at CP 60,000 per person for 2 starters, a palate cleanser (delicious granita), main course, then cheese and then a pudding. The...More

Tasty fresh food, lovely service, interesting local cuisine alongside international options. Combine this with the atmosphere of a well established restaurant and prize winning chefs - and you have it all.

A restaurant full of character and atmosphere with fading photos on the walls and lots of wood. We both had the much vaunted tasting menu which started well with tiny langoustines (2) in batter followed by tasty sea bass ceviche and fruit granita. But it...More

We visited in the off season time, so there are not many guests. We chose the set menu. Service was perfect, and so was the food. Portions seem small, but actually in totality there was more food than we could eat. The menu, 5 courses...More
