My fiance surprised me with an amazing dinner here for our one year anniversary. I have to say, it's one of the most unique and delicious restaurants in the Rio Grande Valley. We loved absolutely everything about the restaurant including the food, cheese platters, champagne and the wonderful ambience. I can't wait to go there again!

A friend and I went here for lunch. Not impressed! Very small amt. of wine for a very high price. The food was expensive and very average. Would not go here again.

Always reliable. McAllen ranch burger and Yahweh salad are favorites. Tincho to drink can't be beat. Opentable best way to get a table. Gets busy. Half price on bottles of wine if train goes by.
