“The best in Baja - right here!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Chef Guillermo Barreto Baldas and his staff have worked hard to make the best small restaurant experience in Baja California.

Our experience included great local wines, incredible original food and service at the level of the best we've had.

Speak to Chef Guillermo and you'll discover his culinary training and experience is vast. He can reference Italian and Greek cuisine and discuss these influences in his cooking.

A great view, a great chef, the best ingredients, and a price that can't be beat.

“Great View, Decent Prices, Slightly Above Average Food”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Nice clean place, funky-kitsch decor, very attentive staff, somewhat limited wine-liquor-beer selections.

Now for the food, inspired yes, innovative no, tasty? the grilled octopus was really tasty, the casino salad was very good, but the pasta gratin? I've could have made some better tasting macaroni and cheese back home, the rest of the food was good, not outstanding, just good period.

It's hip, it's been around 2-2 1/2 years, tasty yes, I surely would come back but only if I really have to, In all honestly it's a good choice, much much better than Belio's and way better and less expensive than manzanilla, anyway come and try it out for yourself.
