Arrived about thirty minutes late for a 7 o'clock reservation due to "Murphys Law".
Greeted by staff at the door as if we were on time. Very impressed at the personal treatment and escorted to a table on the terrace close to the grill. Wonderful evening, light breeze and not too hot. Road close by wasn't as distracting as I thought, provided somewhat eclectic atmosphere to the evening similar to a european street cafe but still had privacy on the elevated terrace.
A bottle of Merlot to get underway followed by shrimp cocktail for me and Atlantic Shrimp for my companion along with some bruschetta with a wonderful fresh tomato type salsa that complimented the warm Garlic perfectly. I loved the shrimp cocktail sauce! Consistency of mayonaisse yet had a wonderful flavor-not the usual ketchup and tabasco sauce.
Had the "local"churrassco with a side of french fried potatos for me and my companion had a grilled pork. The churrasco, although a thin cut was filling and a good portion and I was hungry! Very nice flavor, cooked to medium as requested. Really a delightful choice. Companion enjoyed her choice as well and reported being impressed.
Companion and I had to sit for a bit before ordering dessert we were that impressed with the meal! Relaxing conversation with a bit more wine as attentive staff removed the course and allowed us to enjoy the evening at our own pace. Finally ordered a vanilla ice cream with Frutas for companion and "Tres leche cake" for me along with a cup of Dominican coffee. Very well presented, tasted companions dessert and was delicious,not a typical scoop of ice cream with flavored syrup. My dessert was truly phenomanal!! I tried to make it last as long as possible but it was difficult!!
Truly great ending to a wonderful meal.
In closing I must say the establishment far exceeded my expectations. Staff was very attentive,courteous and personable. The food was delicious, filling and an event to savor. I will be back in the future and highly reccomend.
