Went there with a lots of expectation. The service was good. The variety and selection was awesome. I was not impressed by the quality of food. Few starters and desserts lived up to the expectations.

This has got to be one of SLP´s landmarks; the atmosphere and decor are only rivaled by it´s food; mexican specialties with a touch from San Luis Potosi. The food is good, the ambiance is great.

Delicious food and attention to small details make this place a must! They even have free postcards for you to send to friends - and they will pay the postage. The food is inexpensive and the service is incredible.... They sent me a free drink just because. The artwork both inside and out is beautiful and the food is inexpensive!... More

The restaurant is amazing and unique in... More
