I've been coming to Casa Crespo for 10 years. I've brought foreign and national friends alike, and we were always happy when we left. Their menu is not huge, but competitive and they used to cook well. I asked if they offered a New Year's...More

Gorgeous rooftop views with al fresco dining. Wonderful local cuisine prepared by an award-winning chef. Cooking school offered there too. It was a bit chilly in the evening in late October so we suggest taking a wrap with you.
