Huge portions of mediocre food, supposedly typical, but definitely tourist oriented. Overpriced and the server asked for an additional tip for himself! Can't recommend it.

This restaurants claims to be authentic.....nothing authentic about it. Very touristic with high prices (fruit juice 4 dollars?!). Good waiters and quick service, but how can a waiter ask for more tip if there is allready 10% service charge??!!!
Food was average, would expect more for these prices.

Better go some other place where you actually see locals eating.

I believe I tried this place about ten years ago, may be the same place, not sure. So i decided to give it a try. I had a great meal but I was surprised to find I my meal was $36 US dollars! I guess, because the location and atmosphere, I was expecting something on the moderate side. My waiter was great, but I can't say my meal was worth $36!

Had an amazing (HUGE!) chicken sandwich and the best sangria I've ever had in my life!! The wait staff is a bit too "hover-y" but we definitely enjoyed our meal. Also, I liked that it's sort of open air, so you can watch the city going on outside the restaurant.
