Fabulous food but I overpaid waaaaay too much for lunch!!

I enjoyed the atmosphere, the fiod, and service...the only down side...and it was not the fault of the restaurant... is that they do not take credit cards and it is on the menu. The bill came to USD$89.00 and we had between us...$89 - our last US currency...we thought it was funny but if we'd only had 88 not sure... More

This place is excellent to have a relax and delicious dinner. My husband and I went in dicember. We ordered foie grass as appetizer and lamb and black ravioli as entree. I really recommend this restaurant. The chef Bidanchon rocks!

The restaurant decor is very unique! It's a museum itself, I am sure it was converted from the owners' house. The menu was not big, but very exquisite! Must get the squid rings, the lamp rack, and the ravioli!!!!!! The tea I ordered was served in beautiful tea sets!! The owners were super nice and welcoming! They spoke good English... More

The atmosphere is cool and spectacular staff. The chef is very good and the attendant Ana is very friendly and funny!

Tasted the lamb, mussels and... More

The restaurant is tucked away in the corner of the plaza, behind palm trees, the occasional car driving slowly by over the cobbles. A modest entrance leads to a beautiful interior, tastefully decorated with antiques and flowers. Service is prompt, attentive and knowledgeable. The modern fusion-style food is delicious and reasonably priced. Staff were happy just to let me sit... More

Fantastic restaurant if you are willing to splurge a bit. Amazing food and wine with a very friendly chef. Very worth the high dollars. From what we ordered, the salmon ravioli was particularly perfect.

Such amazing hosts and excellent food, we had calamari to share to start which was very tasty. Then I had garlic prawns and my boyfriend had the salmon ravioli which were both to die for! Very nice setting!

You will feel at home the moment you enter and not just because you really are in the chef/owners home. Carlos, the chef, and his wife, the waitress, will treat you just as one of their own. The atmosphere is cozy & intimate with a mix of smooth jazz music. The tables are set up one the ground floor of... More
