We have eaten here many times and the outdoor courtyard is lovely. I also enjoy spying the black kitty that lives on the property roaming about as patrons eat. Very cute! We love their cherry bombs-filled with a spicy fish concotion-but you must ask about them as they are off the menu. In other seasons they have delicious squash blossoms!!!
The fish is wonderful-fresh and beautifully prepared!

Loved our dinner here. Ask for the waiter's favorites or specials - they may not all be on the menu!

Odd combinations abound. Location way off tract, atmosphere an absolute ZERO. They attempt to be in the worst way an upscaled establishment, but fail poorly. Food, over the top attempt to be a fusion styled cuisine. Results...devastating, heavily overpriced, poor quality and substandard service. To add insult to an overrated "joint" where if your not in the inner circle you can sit in the mosquito infested garden and scratch more than you head why you even stepped into this place. Then you have the displeasure of meeting the owner, an obnoxious American by the name of "Christian" please save us for this horror... Buyer BEWARE..!

We were repeatedly deceived by apparent absence of customers from the street view and assumed that there was a good reason for this!! Little did we know that there is a beautiful outdoor courtyard in back which is a dining oasis! We ate here tonight for the first time with 5 adult friends. Alejandro was our delightful server. 4 of us had the Pescado Mango and each person thought it was fabulous. The fish was not dried out and was perfect. We live on Vancouver Island and regularly enjoy fish for our meals. We had 2 seafood appetizers which were excellent. My wife loves Chilies Rellenos and these were amongst the best she's eaten. Others had seafood enchiladas and pork. Everyone was happy with their choice.
The courtyard area is cozy with low lighting and grown gardens...very romantic setting. Staff are welcoming with good English. We were given 2 complimentary desserts even though we were too full to order our own.
Prices are moderate for this area. Similar to what we would have paid in Canada. Overall cost for 3 with 2 glasses of wine,2 mojitas and appys was 1200 pesos with tip...about $100 Canadian. We would definitely return!!

I really loved the look of this place at night. Salads were wonderful as were the drinks. Entrees were good. Desserts were very good. Nice evening. Enjoyed watching cat from distance, never came too close. Service was very good, would definitely recommend this place.
