came here for the reception of my cousin's wedding. i know it's supposed to keep its spanish period design... but it just looks tired to me -- dusty ceiling, unkempt furniture, and some windows that looked like they need repair. because of the wooden floor, you'd hear it when people in other parts of the house/resto start stomping their feet (for whatever activity they're having). the food was good and plenty though, and the wait staff was very helpful. can't say anything about the value as i wasn't privy to that info, but it's safe to say i wouldn't pay a premium for the place alone.
