A decent spot that is one of the few spots open late in the area. Food was good but it's the decor that is unbelievable. You have to see it to believe it. So many random things adorning the walls. Multiple aquariums housing fish a...More

Pasta was a bit over-cooked. Grilled vegetables were a bit burned. Average food, but convenient for next hotel guests. Deco was exotic. Several fish tanks with good looking fish, salt water and fresh water. Also old style deco with interior.

There's no place like this restaurant in terms of location. Unfortunately the food is not as good as it was it the 90s. Quite expensive too.

I have visited this restaurant a couple of years ago. I came back in September 2014 and I was pleasantly surprised. Not much has changed. You will find a great rustic/Mexican/ranch ambiance. It's a fine mixture between many styles. One of the best I have...More

We came here because it was the only place we found to be open on Easter Monday night in Zola Predosa (later we found out about a few others). The place is huge and filled with wacky decor like aquariums and taxidermy. We ordered the...More
