On the positive side, the food is good, the service is good, the place is clean and they really make an effort. There's nothing really wrong with this restaurant. I'd say it does earn four stars. That being said, I find it a little odd:...More

This is a very special place. The ambiance is amazing. Sitting outside or inside gives a relaxed but stimulating mood. The music is fantastic and the food delicious. Vacafrita is the dish of choice for this family. Super yummy!

Restaurant is like a throw back to 50's! Nice interior, lively music playing and great service. The Mojito is also good, but the was boring and the meat was so tough you couldn't eat it! It was a disappointment!
