My wife and I went there last Tuesday after reading all the good reviews in Trip Advisor. Unfortunatelly it was full and we came back Wednesday. You must go - try to reserve it before. I have had a filet-mignon steak and my wife a Thai curry, both very nice.

We had a wonderful meal based on the reviews by other Trip Advisor contributors. The owner not only cooks but personally takes orders, answers questions and socializes with the customers. George (owner) also a former diver turned us onto Dive 10 where we were equally happy with our diving as we were with our incredible meal! I had a wonderful fresh lobster with a mango salsa that was slightly spicy at the finish. My honey had lamb chops with a spicy mint sauce and mashed potatoes. It was delicious cuisine and a great "non taco" option.

Based on a local recommendation, we stayed on 10th Avenue rather than trying to find something on 5th Avenue. After checking the menu we decided to stay, and received a warm welcome, essential for a restaurant with only 5 tables, but pleasing nonetheless. We had the steak and Thai curry, both of which were tasty, and well-prepared.
We were attended to by the hostess in a charming and friendly manner. The pricing was reasonable, and we would be very happy to return.

My meal was outstanding. It's small (maybe 10 tables? outside dining is best if you can tolerate the heat!) and on Avenida 10 so it didn't get as much traffic. Don't let that stop you though! Wine list is excellent and so was the seared Tuna with potatoes. Jorge is a nice guy and I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner with my friends. HIGHLY recommended.
