Ivan made us feel at home. Local classics (mofongo and currasco) were excellent as were pasta marina and blackened salmon. Medallia was iced-cold (yum)!

Great food and spot to drink with family or friends. Good service. I like the space and comfort to eat or drink outdoors on the Plaza. I love this place.

Went with my family, for my mother in law's birthday. Loved the place. Love their unique dishes. The service was really good, they even gave us a cake on the house to sing "Happy Birthday" to my wife's mother. Ask for Iván, the waiter who greeted us.

We will definitely be eating here often - it's... More
