“Don't miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I ate there yesterday and had a delightful surprise. I like the 80s memorabilia mixed with lucha libre decor. The food is real good too. Seafood with a a modern yet local twist.

“Local food with a nice (and slightly more expensive) twist.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

All the food sold here is a "gourmet" take on local foods, which is nice if you have tried the actual local food in one of the many restaurants across the city. The dishes are lovingly prepared and they taste just as much. A nice place to go, the place is carefully themed in the trends of old restaurants aimed at youth and local families, so expect an experience, not an elegant dinner (which is good in my opinion)

“great seafood in a colorful small restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

surprised by the bill... which was rather expensive for what we ordered. only seafood on the menu, so if you don´t like seafood, don´t go. enjoyed the best shrimp tostada i´ve ever had.
