Situated in a very nice area, this restaurant impressed you not only by the food but also by the ethical conduit - their employees (aside chefs) are all people with special needs - very nice attitude. Food good, decent prices.

We were so happy to lunch at Tacabanda where we had dined a few years ago. The food is excellent, the dining room very attractive and the service attentive. You will be glad if you choose this restaurant.
