Reviewed June 25, 2014

This is a brand new restaurant in a high end hotel. The location is amazing. $5 beer and mixed drinks. Tapas menu $5-10.

“Excellent Very Small Plates”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

The plates are very small for all meals... It's a bit like having tapas. The prices are similar to a fancy US resort which was a bit surprising, but the quality was very good.

“nice but $$$$$ for what you get”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

It was a beautiful zen like experience, except they allow children to dine right along side couples. I like children, have some of my own but I wanted a relaxing romantic experience. The food was good, not great and very very very small portions, which made it expensive for us because we usually share. We also asked to order a bottle of wine and were given the wine i pad to make our selection. i asked if the prices were for the entire bottle because it was confusing and was assured it was for the bottle. so we went ahead and ordered a bottle of malbec from Chilli. when we got our check it turned out that the price quoted on the ipad was for a glass not the bottle so.......not impressed we paid a much much higher price than we wanted
