The service and staff very friendly and nice. I had the chicken breast with the sweet onions and it was pretty good. My wife had a traditional beef dish and didn't care for it. Very reasonable. Nice a nice looking dining room but clean.

Even a take out area with pastries and other items. Service was average and food was also. Disappointed of the flies in the dining area. All in all I would give them... More

Food is ok, service just ok, I don't know but I think the chicken with mushroom is better at the Balcon in Deerfield.

No-frills restaurant with fresh seafood and delicious Latin dishes. The natural juices is the best part of this place. And the desserts are top notch. Portions are big and can be easily shared. Great for families!
