I've been a carnivore lately. This restaurant has vegetarian dishes, which I tried. They were pretty good. Service was fine. Pleasant atmosphere. I conversed in Spanish, but English is spoken here by some of the staff.

The important thing about a place is certainly the quality, taste and presentation of the food and that was all good. HOWEVER we arrived at the place around 7:45pm and it closes at 9:00pm, all the waiters treated us in a quite condescending way for...the time we arrived, the treatment of ALL the staff was disrespectful and basically they kicked us out of the place... they turned off the music, they closed curtains, they mopped in front of us, they gave us the bill when we were still eating and we couldn't even finish our meal. Likewise, there were several drinks that we ordered and they didn't have them available and they were on the menu. We were testing how was the experience to host an event for q dinner service with 45 people and definitely the bad Service and the NO professionalism of the place makes us never return and leaves much to be desired! They must train ALL of their staff to be more service focused and professional no matter the time!More

Been here a couple of times while visiting the country. Last night I had the pruscuito and dates pizza (minus the dates). Just the right dough and the ingredients were obviously fresh. Also tried some of my friend's garlic bread and it literally tasted like...it was baked in a coal fire oven. I was very surprised to find out it was baked in a regular gas oven.More

Hidden in what seems to be the back of a store, wonderful spaces, outside sitting, truly great service and yummy salads in a city that is not big on veggies.

Good place for a quick bite to eat during lunch. The menu offers a good selection. I opted for a sandwich which was very good. The restaurant also offers both indoor and outdoor seating.

I habe been here for Breakfast and late dinner, both times where good, i think for breakfast, they more options, or change the menu for different options. The wine bottles where good... They have so many options... But honestly they need to be tempered... Where...a tropical country, so the red wine cant be at "room temperature"More
