We wanted somewhere nice but reasonable to go for dinner and treat a family member we were staying with. The food was absolutely mouthwatering! We have eaten a lot of Italian food in South America but this really was the icing on the cake. There are other meat and fish dishes if you don't fancy pasta or risotto although I... More

Visited this place twice and they didn't disappoint. Great seafood and other daring creations (my personal favorite was the eggplant appetizer). Very good service too.

The menu is extensive and has a little bit of everything, the wine list can be better. The location is really nice and the staff was friendly and professional

I had the Damaris de Diego - rice with coconut, shrimp stew and fried plantain. Loved the combination of flavors. For dessert, we had the chocolate profiteroles which were delicious. Nice ambiance and great service from the staff and owner.

Our server was attentive, though he couldn't get through the taxi company when we needed it. We walked a block to find a taxi (it was... More

I ate dinner on a Friday night with four colleagues. I was not impressed by the food, nor the service. Due to the prices, you expect better food and service. Wine list was non-existent / prices not accurate.
