We chose this place cause we were hungry and didn't want to look around for anything else,bad choice. Staff is not friendly,food is not good for the price you pay. And the whole time you are sitting there you get harassed by street vendors. Horrible!!

There are a lot of choices of places to eat in this square and there are many other resturants very close by. The food was mediocre at best. No question it's a great location but there are numerous other choices. The cocktails were quite decent...More
