I had been looking forward to dining at this restaurant for about two years...and then a Groupon popped up and I jumped at the chance to eat there for half price. First of all, the food was mediocre at best. My husband and I both ate the chicken mole, which was okay. The garnish consisted of a grape tomato sliced in half on each side of the chicken and a sprig of cilantro on the top. It wasn't visually appealing and it wasn't tasty either. We also found the ambience lackluster as well. We sat at a small table in the center of the restaurant and the seats were made of of faux rattan, so I felt like I was sitting on a piece of lawn furniture. From where we were sitting, we were able to listen to the band (which was good), but we found it odd that the band was playing in front of a jumbo TV that was playing football. From our vantage point, there was also a wall that had several TV's on it and they were playing a runway show. In the other corner of the room, where people waited, there was a big couch that is reminiscent of something you would see in an Austin Powers movie. I felt like this restaurant was a "jack of all trades, master of none". My husband and I were in and out of there in less than 45 minutes because we couldn't wait to leave. Since SA is a such a foodie city, spend your money somewhere else.
