Our family visited here on recommendation. We had a party of 8 with children, teens, and adults. Expecting to be ordering from a menu we were caught of guard when the waiter simply began telling us a bit about the restaurant and the ingredients they use and started asking about our likes and dislikes. We were initially like deer and the headlights. Picking up the cue he assured us that his goal was to provide an amazing dining experience and said that if every there was anything we didn't like we could simply send it back. Hesitatingly we began to share a bit about our likes and dislikes, but with 8 people at the table there was not much of a consensus. Our waiter then confidently said, "I'm going to bring you some of this, and this, and this." Honestly, we were not very confident, but said okay anyhow. My fear and suspicions began to creep in. Would the kids like much of what landed on the table. Two daughters began to mutter that they would just like a menu. How would we know what we were being charged and would he just keep bringing food until we had a huge dinner bill?
The first three items hit the table served in family style dining. Cautiously we started to dig in and "Bam!" everyone's faces lit up. It was unique, inventive, and (most importantly) delicious! We flagged the waiter back and told him more about what we liked and didn't like. A few minutes later a couple more new items on the table and we devoured them. I think we may have ordered one more item and more drinks before calling it quits.
Then, perhaps sensing our initial unease with this process, our waiter returned and asked if as a way of saying thank you if he could offer us complimentary White Russians. Naturally we accepted. The bill came to 1620 pesos after a generous tip (the service warranted a hefty tip), or roughly $15/person. While not "cheap" certainly not expensive for how well we ate and the quality of service.
If up for a little trusting adventure I recommend giving this place a try!
