This place is a definitely for sharing small plates and everything was pretty good. Atmosphere and service is 100%! Live music in the evening & good drinks is a bonus. Not sure about tuna tartare it might have been bad night for tuna.

Highly recommend this restaurant. Atmosphere and food 100% recommended. Food was not cheap as expected but Mexico is not cheap like we all think. Now after all this, we love to go back there because of food.
