They have loosen up a bit from their previous approach. Menu is simpler with good value. They have engaged a 5 piece local band with music ranging from reggae, 70s hits to current songs.

Very relaxing, not too over crowded and not loud. You can have a good conversation here. Food was simple and tasty. Best of all is the 3 ladies from Cuba with their kind of latino music.
