“Great Roof Terraza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This a great bar to go in the night. It is close to the Central Plaza and near other bars if you want to jump around.

This place has 4 ambients, one for live rock bands, a bar, a mexican restaurant and the roof bar were we went. This last one has a great view of the city and other roof bars. It has also a fireplace to sit around when the temperature drops.

“Most expensive food on our trip and also the worst food we ate all week.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

We heard they had delicious breakfast but ended up eating here during lunch time. The atmosphere and service was good but the bill was shocking for how much food we got and it really wasn't good. We ended up leaving a whole dish practically uneaten because the seafood was terrible. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Dear ART1012,

We appreciate your sincere comment about your experience at the Mama Mia Restaurant. It's not easy to receive negative reviews, but specially these are helping us to improve our quality and we are working on it constantly. it could of been a good solution for both parts if you had mentioned to us, the dish you ordered wasn't well prepared, while you was at the restaurant, so we would have a chance to make it up to you. We apologize for your unsatisfied experience, and thanks again for your feedback

Sincerely
Mama Mia Restaurant
