The menu is limited to tapas-style servings, so you'll be eating wonderful food, but not really a traditional meal. Our group of four ordered five plates and had enough.The food really WAS delicious. The beers are more interesting than in most local places. The decor...More

With a group of 5 we went here for lunch. It's small (but perhaps there's more space somewhere in the back) but that's fine. We just ordered different fish, meat and vegetarian dishes for the group. Service was quick and friendly. Not sure if the...More

You can tell the chef trained at Nobu! Everything we had here was lovely. It is also a small place so the service is excellent. We ate here twice and both times were fantastic.

Izakaya is a tapas restaurant—the four of us ordered about 7 different dishes which were delivered to our table over the course of about an hour. All praised the eggplant en miso; I particularly loved the mushrooms/zucchini. My friend raved over the mahi-mahi en miso....More

Izakaya is a Japanese Sake Establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. Enticing Oriental Appetizers with a tropical twist, creating a fusion between guatemalan and asian flavors. Fine cuisine prepared in an open kitchen, by reknown chefs with an international trajectory, which includes Nobu, Zuma & Gordon Ramsay in London. Cozy atmosphere and great music.
