This restaurant serves very good food and plays Jazz music sometimes not always. The best thing about this restaurant are the helpful and friendly staff. I ate here three times. Can recommend

We were referred to this restaurant by the folks at Alto de la Bellena winery and we ate here on our last day on our way to the airport. I wish we had found it earlier. All around good food, great service and the dessert of mil hojas cake was amazing!

We enjoyed this beach sytle restaurant. The service was very good and the food was also very good. There is a Freddo ice cream shop there as well that is a bonus. A must if staying in this area.

Food was good. Good place to go with family as kids can go outside on a very quiet place and you can still have a look at them. It's probably a bit pricy to the location and overall restaurant infra and food

You feel welcome all the time. Several vegetarian options . The best "Patatas Bravas" I can remember. Delicious parmigiana eggplant. Excellent glass of red wine "the end of the world " The homemade Herbal liqueur is something to remember and come back ! My husband ate a delicious lamb. Reasonable prices. Welcoming atmosphere. Definitely a place to return .

My husband and I came here on our honeymoon for dinner one night. It was so good, we went back for lunch another day. They had our "new favorite" wine from a local vineyard, Alto de la Ballena. We especially liked the seafood and pastas.

Un negocio de familia bajo la batuta de la chef Graciela Ferreres y la dirección artística de Leandro Quiroga Ferreres.Entre los artistas que han pasado por sus escenarios se podrán encontrar una gran diversidad de artistas como: Jaime Roos, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Hermeto Pascoal, Luis Salinas, Joao Bosco, Fito Páez, Skay Beilinson, Leny Andrade, Cuarteto de Nos, Liliana Herrero, Chico Cesar, Fabiana Cantilo, Fernando Cabrera, Paulinho Moska, entre tantos otros.
