We had dinner at this restaurant, great atmosphere and location, friendly staff. Food was very, very good, huge portions. The wine was great! Prices are a bit higher than usual in Mexico, but worth it!

We went here for dinner one night. Great service from the start, very attentive staff! We had an antipasto entree which was delicious! Two of us had t-bone steak and it was amazing! The other one of us got another steak (can't remember but I think it was one of the "top" ones, that was still good but not as... More

Stumbled on the restaurant by chance and we were pleased to enjoy such a wonderful meal. This restaurant delivers in ambiance, service and quality. It is worth it. Don't think twice, just go!

Not a cheap place, but it's premium location and nice interiors make a good impression. The food quality is OK, but the cost doesn't reflect what you get. I ordered a medium rare Entraña and I got a well done one.

We wouldn't say that the food was bad or the service inattentive. However, in a fascinating city with so many culinary options, why bother? We spent five times as much as we normally would for a meal and did not feel we experienced added value.

Beef to stiff and over cooked, I would not go again and do not recommend. The place is fine but there are better places to go.

Just had our evening meal here tonight. Was shown the different types of steak avaliable to us which definitely helped to choose. Our waiter spoke English and was very helpful. Free small nibbles of dip and bread and small pastries with ham and cheese were very yummy. Our steaks arrived cooked to perfection with a large fresh salad. We wanted... More

We ordered steak (rib cut) and bolognese--everything was delicious and the wines by the glass were wonderful to pair with the meal. Some of the most tender steak we've had/tried outside of La Paz, Mexico (steak can be a bit tougher in some parts of Mexico).
