We felt very welcome and valued here and really enjoyed the food. The cocktails are huge and very well made. The garden is pretty at night and table service was attentive.

The restaurant was really nice. Al fresco dining with towering mango trees and nice lighting gives this place a romantic, yet relaxing atmosphere, good enough for groups who want to have a nice conversation. The prices are fair, especially considering the ambiance and the decently...More
