I went to this restaurant for lunch. The food was good even though quite expensive. But the waiter who served us spoilt the whole experience. He was arrogant, not friendly at all and made us feel very unconfortable. We spoke to the manager/owner regarding his...More

Am very surprised by the negative reviews here. This is as innovative an approach to seafood in general, and ceviche in particular, as we've ever encountered. My partner's seafood was marinated in a dairy (!) based sauce, rich and complex, surrounded by popcorn (again, what...More

Very expensive, small portions, bad service! We paid 100 USD for tiny portions, slow service and tap water they charged us for. Awful food to boot. AVOID.

Getting a table can be a challenge here, so go early. We lucked out and managed to score a table inside without waiting. The restaurant has a fun, upbeat vibe that is matched by a very interesting and inventive menu. That said, the most delicious...More

Excellent food. Outstanding ceviche. Best empanadas in the country. Fantastic mojitos. Everything we ordered off the menu was exquisite. We were sorry we did not book every meal in this restaurant. The service was superb. Would go back as many times as possible.

The restaurant has many fish options but as you know in South America and Central America meat and fish are the main items. This kitchen will work with you as long as they have items that meet your requirements.
