We chose this restaurant because of its proximity to our second destination. We loved everything about this place. Our table was perfect for viewing the entertainment. Our dinner, drinks and service was outstanding. We would definitely return!

Had appetizers and dinner here with several work colleagues. The food and drinks (mojitos) were excellent! We had a private room and the service was very good. Cotton candy for dessert too.

Good place for a gathering of a large group of people. However the spread of dinner was limited. It was a fun place and we enjoyed a lot.
