Great parrillada

Visited once and I had to come back the salads are fresh but the meats are real good and the have the Latin American touch. Highly recommended.

Good food and service, but a bit pricey! ... The best was the grill mix for 2... tasty fish and meat. You can pay with credit card.

Waitstaff were attentive. Food came out promptly. We ordered the mixed meat platter with the beef supposed to be medium. It came out closer to blue or rare. We sent it back asking for medium. It returned and was still rare. We could not bothered sending it back a second time. Shame as it was seasoned well. We knew the... More

This fisk was not so fresh , it twas too big, too much pepper, and the potatoes was from the micro. The service was good, but too much music and too much noise from the fan.

It was a great restaurant, with selection of cuts of meats, but there were not too many option of fish although it was an island. Overall great service a little hot inside you may want to sit outside.

A good restaurant if you like barbecue style food, some good choice, the meat is good, although you can find as good meat in other places (like Giardino). Prices are a little bit more expensive too there. Service is good, and it s quite nice to eat front of the big grill!

We had lunch in this restaurant one day while we were staying in the Santa Cruz Island. Service and food are both good. I ordered a chicken burger. The chicken was fresh, juicy and tender. It was one of the best chicken burgers that I ever had.

As most places here the seafood was very good. Pizza crust was marginal although toppings were fresh. Service here at lunch was slower than any other restaurant we ate at. 20 minutes between requesting check and getting it.
