This restaurant has a nice ambient and it is well located. The food was average and my partner ordered a salad that was supposed to be exotic but in the end it was not and there was not much food. Price is average.

This is NO 4 star place. But first the good: it's a nice location, fine for a drink and the server was reasonably attentive. Now for the main story: The food was borderline inedible and cost a fortune. My buddy and I showed up hungry and ready to eat. We ordered a mix of things, local and international including quesadillas.... More

This was a meeting place for our tour group but was also a good place to enjoy happy hour cocktails. Friendly service, nice atmosphere.

It's a good restaurant but not the best. My fish was dry, the rest good. Waiters are very friendly but not good attending...

Though recommended by our tour operator, this was the biggest disappointment of our trip. Service was very slow. We were notified that certain items were not available more than 40 minutes after ordering and the food came out both out of sequence and episodically. We won't be back.

You won't be disappointed when you stop here. Drinks are delicious, food is great, it's a win win win situation. Be sure to try a Caipiriña!

The two fish dishes my boyfriend and I ordered were great. Service was ok. Restaurant said "no smoking", but a couple tourists still smoked at a table outside the window. Also watch out for your bill. 10% tip was already added to the bill.

We will not come here again because of several reasons, it took 10 minutes before we got our drinks and we already got our food. And then they also told me they did not had the drink i wanted, after 10 minutes. The hamburger i ordered was drowning in fluids and the fries tasted terrible, soft not well baked. It... More
