OK Food and helpful service

We went here on the recommendation of hotel staff during the local off season. The restaurant is a splendid room and building. The staff were helpful and attentive. Food was fine and the wine was good.

I was there this evening for dinner. The restaurant was out of everything, at least 3/4 of the things that are on the menu were not available including the shellfish as well as steaks as well as the king crabs. The food that we did order, the salmon and the grouper, quite frankly were absolutely horrible. The appetizers including the... More

The restaurant overlooks the main plaza. A few chef suggestions were not available during lunch hours. Hake stuffed with king crab and avocado was nice. Portions are huge.

The restaurant is first of all in a very nice location on top of the square, you should seat by the windows. Our waiter was awesome, teaching us some expressions in spanish for placing an order. Everything we've ordered was just great ant the prices are really fair.

In the lonely planet and recommended by the hotel, we were hoping for a real local taste. I am excited when a menu is expensive because I expect to get what I pay for. This restaurant unfortunately fell very short of that saying. The ``Tasca Omelet` was very good but the other two dishes we order were just bad. Especially... More

On the recommendation of a well known guide book we "hit this local favourite" . We had a very average meal with fairly disinterested service even though the place was largely empty. The pleasant view of the city square opposite was not enough to stop it being an unpleasant restaurant experience. A local had earlier suggested we try somewhere else... More
