Description: Escape the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave and dine with us in our beautiful gardens just a block off 5th Ave on 22nd. Our service is friendly and sincere while our cuisine is an international blend that reflects the diverse culinary backgrounds and experience of our chefs. We are sure you will love our food as much as we do!! Oh yeah we also have the biggest wine pour in all of Playa!!

Whilst the (menu English or Mexican) food here is as expected from traveller reviews there are some improvements needed. A decent coffee maker with cappuccino facility is a must for any International restaurant. Just like many Mexican places, they also do not serve the food on hot plates. Obviously the palapa style construction lends to a nice atmosphere. Adequate service, but why do they always take the plate away immediately after finishing. Staff need to wait until all diners at the table finish before clearing each course. One of our diners ordered prawn brochette and got chicken. Instead of waiting for the correct meal, it was offered free of charge. Europeans will find that the expected 15-20% tips a little steep.

While the food was exceptional the combination of great food and individuals with wonderful personalities that really cared about their clients having a great experience made everything special. Chris, Nicholas and Gabi really took good care of us. Thanks so much.

The place is just amazing. We were sitting outside by the pool and the cool weather made it even more special. As you enter the place is just a WOW and you start taking all the pictures you can. It was only us two and few more tables so the waiter Nicolas took good care of us all the time. My girlfriend had a Cesar salad ( very big portion) and a rib eye with champignons. I had a rib eye with bernaise sauce cooked with tequila. The two pieces o meat were just great......so tender that were melting in our mouths. Everything accompanied by a Malbec wine and we had a desert at the end. The price was 1215 pesos which I believe is a good price for the great food and the amazing environment we were in. This atmosphere was made more magic by the presence of a full moon.

Hey really sweet experience. Beautiful at night by the pool. And the little cat who wasn't annoying and came by for a small morsel and visit was a worthy pal. Great crew. Nice Dinner.
