“A place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

Had an orgasmic lunch . We were four ordered for five. Fabio the owner Chef sure knows how to combine flavor with color. Some say that fusion is confusion ... But here it's far from that. Had a lalo salad (ladyfinger) and a tortellini w Cep mushroom ... Heaven for a vegetarian... A definite must in this dream setting w amazing Service....

“What a dud!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

The restaurant looks great, and the location could not be better (under a tree in the lee of the house). But the food tasted like it had sat prepared for a while (the prawn salad I had was tired, and my wife's dorado (the catch of the day) was overlooked. This definitely is in the "must try harder" camp.
