I just went here last night Sept 5 and had some beers and tacos. Pretty sure it's the same place but wasn't fancy and had Mexican food. Friendly good service and fair prices. Casual place with other fun tourists and inside or outside seating.

There is something for everybody. Take Floribbean, blend in a couple of South and North American Classics, add in an Asian item or two and finish it with some European dishes, all with the Chef's twist...You have SALT ROCK Grille + Cocktails. Home-made bread and chutney start the meal and in-house baked desserts finish it. A nicely shaken Martini or glass of Wine (many of our wines are available by the glass) will complement any dish. This small Family-owned and run restaurant is only 6 month old, but is getting great positive feedback and reviews from both locals and visitors. Sit inside or on the outdoor patio overlooking the NEW QUINTA Avenida. Daily Dinner Specials run from $125 Pesos to $175 Pesos, including house salad and sides.We have. daily Drink Specials.We are located 6 stores south of Calle 38 (Street) on East side of Street.
