“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Walked inside and was greeted by Paco. It's great to have a personal touch by the owner, very friendly and out going staff as well. We sat at the bar for dinner and enjoyed excellent service. Enjoyed an excellent bottle of wine, they have a great wine list even found one from Walla Walla Washington. Dinner was very flavorful and we enjoyed every bite. Great atmosphere and very relaxing.

“Ranks in the top 1% of any meal I have ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

My husband and I travel a lot. We are in Galveston several times a year and could not believe we have missed this jewel all these years. The food was delicious the service was above and beyond our expectation and the atmosphere was perfect. The menu had a great deal of diversity. We had CAMARONES AJILLO which was amazing. We were there on a Friday night and it was busy. We would certainly recommend reservations.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We loved it. Amazing service,food & wine list. Most of all the ambience was just what we were hoping for. From Los Angeles & we have all kinds of fine dining experiences - & this was just terrific & highlight for our trip. Owner came around to greet us as well. Special occasion you won't be disapointed.

“The best fine dining on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Love this place! We eat here every year and love it! The service is impeccable, food quality is at the top of its game and the atmosphere is romantic and cozy. Get ready for a friendly yet short visit from Paco. He is there every night and you can't wait to come back!

“NYE Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Overall, it was a fabulous dinner. The food and service were above average. The only thing that sort of put a damper on the experience was a misunderstanding. When we first arrived for the second seating, Paco came over to our table. He really seemed like a genuine and friendly guy who qppreciated our patronage. After talking to him for a bit, he asked us if he wanted drinks. We were under the impression that they were "on the house", but later the waiter asked us what we had ordered and added it to the bill. While we certainly didn't mind paying for the drinks, it was just kind of unintentionally misleading.
