Excellent food and very cool atmosphere -- like a tropical Ernest Hemingway hang-out. The burrata and octopus apps were fantastic. Really appreciated complimentary champagne at beginning of meal -- nice touch to our special occasion. Also right around the corner from our hotel (Waldorf), which was super convenient. Totally recommend this restaurant!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals here. The food was outstanding, and the personal friendly service was especially appreciated. Quite a good value too. Can't go wrong for a really nice pleasant dinner.

Just spectacular food and nice new building. You need reservations to get in building if they don't know you.

La Posta has moved and has lost its old place as a wonderful eating experience. The Corvina in parchment paper is still nicely done; however, the spaghetti and meat balls was horrific. Several people compared it to Chef Boyardee canned spaghetti and the meatballs were obviously reheated from a bag of frozen and were still cold. If you go in... More

I was really excited to eat at this restaurant but walked right past it trying to find it. The yard is totally overgrown, no signage and no sign of life. Sadly this place is no longer.

I don't know when the last reviewers went here but on 6th February it was definitely closed down with a sign on the gate referring creditors to The Market restaurant. They clearly have not closed down the online booking system but don't be misled as we were!

It has been two years since I visited this place. I had a good experience, and I still remember the food was very tasty. I had an octopus carpaccio that I still cannot get off my mind hahaha. The ambiance was nice, in a very traditional latin american house. And service was good, though I guess due to cultural differences... More
