“Wow-great food!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

You can choose your meat, your veggies and your sauce. The plate was small, but filled with delicious food. The chimichurri sauce was excellent! Unusually good food.

“Nice restaurant close to campus”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Varied menu with a Latin flavor. Good food for a very reasonable price (less than $20/person). Casual dining atmosphere. Was there on a Sunday evening and was quite crowded; I would highly recommend a reservation if you don't want to wait..

“Live music on the patio”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Loved the guitar players on the patio. Great food too...really enjoyed my meal! A very nice change of pace with the mango salad and stuffed chicken. Just a great meal all around.

“Worst service I have ever had to Indore!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Service sucked across the board, maybe if you had some real servers it would Mk up for the over priced food you are serving. The table never was cleared ,dIshes pilled up in front of us. Just couldn't believe how crappie the service was on a Friday night. I will never go bk nor will I let any of my people Indore this type of service. To top It all off it was my wife's b-day and was treated like we weren't even there till it was time to pay. Had to flag down the server several times to try and get a drink was ignored. I am an executive chef from Miami, Florida we live here in Gainesville and this was the worst service ever . To the chef great job on the food to bad you hv terrible servers. Worst experience ever .
