The restaurant is a beautiful colonial house with a fountain in the middle. I ordered churrasco, it was good and I did not think it was pricey (12$ for a churrasco sounds fair to me). It is pricier than most places in Leon though. The...More

Beautiful colonial-like garden restaurant. Gorgeous wood and fountains in spacious restaurant. Romantic setting. Fabulous service and delicious food. Not typical nica food. It's an american/italian/nica fusion restaurant. Swing by!!! In a safe part of Leon.
