We were there early in the night, with a handful of diners, and found the atmosphere was still good, meals were superb, service friendly and helpful, and could not believe the reasonable price for three courses.

We wanted an appetizer and tried to just order rice & beans, but the owner insisted we order a lunch. Our taxi driver eventually stepped in to translate our dilemma, and we all shared 1 typical chicken with rice/beans plate. Muy Bien!!

Outstanding cuisine, excellent service, extremely personable owners, terrific atmosphere. Try anything, as all of the food is fantastic. Even the seafood stew is extraordinary. I don't know how this couple manages such excellence, but they do.

I guess this restaurant would be an artist's dream... unique decorations in a light and breezy atmosphere, and the food very attractively designed. Only problem is if you come there to eat rather than look, you'll end up disappointed as the portions are very small....More
