We had dinner here, filet migion and a huge lobster tail. The beef is so tender it melts in your mouth. The lobster is just perfect. The service is great. For an appetizer, meal and wine the cost was only $35 pesos.

Great environment with a great music band playing. Food was mediocre at best, it didn't taste so fresh. In terms of service, the go over and beyond to please you.

You do not need to reserve but it can get busy and fill up fast as it does not have a lot of tables. It is a great restaurant and the prices are reasonable. We really enjoyed it. Have fun!
