Awesome meal, but very expensive

This restaurant offers a significant amount of tapas (a tapa is a small dish that can be shared with the table in order for everyone to experience different dishes) to choose from. I have eaten here at least 20 times over the past six years and have not had a bad meal yet. It is a lot of fun... read more

Great tapas. Very good service. One of the best food we had in the area. Lighting could be better but service very good.

Food was excellent but pricey. Had 2 desserts to pick from, Melting chocolate cake and Pavlova. Told the waitress 3 times I wanted Pavlova and she keeps saying Melting Chocolate cake and that's what we got. Pissed me off, but my hubby ate it.

Every tapas was excellent combine with an excellent service as we rarely see. Don't hesitate to share plates! The tuna, the salmon, the filet mignon, the tacots, they we're all perfect and tasteful! Thanks Alex and your brigade for an awesome experience.

Very nice place with good service. We started with drinks, a margarita and gin and tonic. Both were well done. We had three tapas, the chicken masala ( well spiced), the Salmon (well prepared), and spring rolls ( very crisp). For dessert we had the chocolate tort and it was great. the place is a little on the pricey side,... More

Ann runs a great restaurant. The food is always fantastic, staff is friendly and professional and the ambiance is great. Martini Friday is a great night to go!

This restaurant in Playa Hermosa is easy to find on the main road. The food is gourmet fusion and really great. We ate here twice and were amazed at each offering. Don't miss this gem if you are in Playa Coco or Playa Hermosa. Wow

We tried over 8 different times from the menu. They were all excellent. Serving staff were on top of their game and friendly.

We were instantly impressed with the service and food. Unfortunately once the staff "dropped the ball" they really dropped it. As soon as something went wrong they were ill-equipped to handle it, from our server to the manager to the owner. And I'm only guessing she is the owner, because once she heard of our issue she disappeared. Too bad... More

Great restaurant, with seating above ground (stairs to outside seating area for all), lovely atmosphere and fabulous food and service! The tapas are a great idea as you can taste a few at atime and share with your partner or others at the table with you! My husband and I were in Playa Hermosa for 3 nights and ate here... More
