Best restaurant i have been to in ages

This restaurant was recommended by our casa & it exceeded expectations. Two of us had the house specialty of Borracho lamb & it was to die for. We had a fabulous Chilean carmenere wine to go with it. The entertainment also was very lovely.. Just winderful night.

Food so tasty and so cheap, we had to look twice at the bill to make sure they had charged us for everything! Live music both times we visited. Lively atmosphere and excellent service. Highly recommended

I could hardly eat the Cordon Blue, no idead what... More
