Came here on a Sunday, it was pretty packed. Mostly tourist, the food and the drinks were very good. Great atmosphere, it’s open late and they play music all night.

I noticed that a lot of people make a reservation by stopping by the restaurant and making it for another night. A bit inconvenient if you are not in the area, I would try having your host or hotel contact them when you... More
