First time here. Came for brunch. Ramon was a good server. The restaurant was open for inside and outside dining. We chose outside and enjoyed a wonderful view. Our food was very good. We look forward to having dinner here.

Very relaxing place to have a lunch or dinner, no matter if is couple, family or fiends, also for a date dinner. The owner (Spanish guy) is so friendly, his attention to details is great. The food is nice bur if you love Crepes they got wide menu. No. So great about steaks bit fairly. Good price, excellent ambient.

I've been eating at this restaurant for many many years, and the quality of the food has never dropped. The prices are great, the food is very tasty and the place is very nice and comfy. Great place for family, friends and couples. Good for any day breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Tried was the... More

Our experience here was nothing short of great. The host was gracious and patient with us and speaks a little English. I had the ensalada lomito- a steak salad that was delicious. A friend had a crepe that was good and the Churrasco was also good. Prices were very reasonable and they even gave us separate checks. Would come back... More

We enjoyed this restaurant with his large internal room, the quality of the food and the friendly service, though rather slow.

I live in the neighborhood and I very much enjoy eating at this restaurant. I typically go for their daily lunch special (plato del día) and occasionally for breakfast. The prices are very agreeable for good food. The daily lunch menu includes a salad bar, and the main dish with rice, beans, vegetables, your choice of meat and a natural... More
