“Nice”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Food and service were nice. Bakery is good. Try the fresh fruit juice concoctions -- they're great! Sit in the open courtyard with its plants and fountains.

“disappointing”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Echoing previous reviews, the ambiance is great and service good but unfortunately the food is really a let down. Our main dishes (pizza and shrimp pasta) came out cold and were sent back to be reheated. The pasta came back hot but the shrimp on top were still cold. Overall pretty basic unimaginative food-the tapas starter was served with Ritz crackers (slightly stale).
The restaurant was full on our visit, and other diners seemed to be enjoying their meals-maybe we could have ordered better or asked for recommendations from the waiter.
I'd definitely go back for a drink (decent house red wine in carafes) and to enjoy the atmosphere.

“Tasty Food”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Perfect for date night. The menu is pricier than most Nica options, but MUCH higher end and absolutely delicious. We also had superb service!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

This place has amazing food and a very nice ambiance. This would be a great place to bring a date with dim lighting, candles and nice music. I got the meal made for a king with lobster, shrimp and fish in a creamy wine sauce. It was fantastic! Not the cheapest in town, but some of the best quality food I've eaten here. I came back a couple times!

“Excellent atmosphere, ok food”
Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

The food was average. Both dishes that we ordered had some challenges. One slightly undercooked and the other over sauced. The salad was good, large and with lots of fresh vegetables.

Despite the ok food, I would return for the atmosphere. The lighting, refined decorations and service were very nice. It was a nice change of pace from some of the other Leon restaurants we ate at during our stay. The open garden-terrace next to our seats was a very enjoyable environment for the meal.
