“Home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

As great as it is to fully experience another culture, it is nice to have a little taste of home. It's as eclectic a bar/restaurant as you might find in any arts district in a metropolitan American city.

“Good food and courteous service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We found the YRT to be just the perfect place for a relaxing lunch. The servers were courteous and the food / drinks were good. The owner introduced himself and showed around his restaurant and bar (upstairs). My suggestions are to eat lunch their, go to the Fitzcarrold for dinner, then drinks above the YRT and finish it off with ice cream at Ari's.

“Zero ambiance, staff don't care, food poor.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The staff from other reviews were supposedly attentive and professional. They were poor. Ignoring us, chatting to each other whilst we tried to order, brought us dirty cutl'Sery and one of our glasses still had lip marks on it. The food was really average, bland and uninteresting. The menu is vast so nothing can be fresh. It's run by an American, yet the menu is littered with spelling mistakes and awful sounding dishes. "Spaguetti with soy". Mmmm

“Interesting decor and variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

good variety of local dishes, as well as others suited for more picky eaters, like hot dogs, chili. Call it Tex-Mex meets the Peruvian Jungle.

“What a little Gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

The restaurant was full of facinating objects, and paintings. The waitress that served us was so polite, and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. The steak and chips were the BEST we have ever, ever had. We would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant and will certainly go again on our next visit.
