“Great option”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

This is a small, cozy and great place to spend a wonderful evening. Service is great but food is just wonderful. You will be tempted by so much flavors most of them inspired in the Mexican cuisine, ingredients and traditional elements. Be prepared to taste something different and surely great. Make reservations as it is a small place and can get very crowded.

“Excellent meal and drinks”
Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

Found the place through TripAdvisor. It is difficult to get to it, because it is behind other businesses: you cannot see it from the street. Slide a door and you find a strange, but interesting atmosphere. Our waiter said it used to be more extreme before. I had a mojito (check the name of the drinks on the menu). The music is too loud to sustain any meaningful conversation with a friend or a coworker, but it may work well for a romantic partner. The food is exquisite. We had an appetizer with pork over a fried tortilla and platano sauce. Then we ordered the rachera meatballs and the beef strips with guacamole (there are few vegetarian options). Everything was delicious. The service was great.

“AwesomelyWeird”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I went here with my husband for our anniversary. Not knowing anything about this restaurant I came dressed to the nines only to be thrown into this Gothic dungeon-esque restaurant! Which was awesomely weird and quite refreshing for San Pedro. The food is some of the best the city has to ofter from appetizer to dessert and we cant wait to go back soon!

“Atention to detail on another level”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This restaurant probably only has 10 tables, which are all personally greeted by the chef himself. The food is beyond description. It is a complete experience of culinary excelence.

The details are amazing. I even felt like the music was hand picked for the place.

My only complaint if any is that I did not quite understand the theme of the decor.
