Great service, great food.... Huge portions! I had a delicious risotto, I don't think I ever had it better, our waitress was very honest about sizes so we managed to order different things without over eating.... Love this place is not Gaston Acurio... But is pretty good!!

Behalf is a mainly seafood restaurant, and has been in the bussiness for a few years, you have lots of new restaurants offering the same kind of food and not so expensive than this one. The patio area is nice , specialy for summer time.
