We enjoyed our meal here tremendously. Service was prompt and efficient, their salad was sizable, and the entrees served out of the oven. Recommended.

Great value for money, good service and food. We had the vegetarian house spaghetti and a (very tender) Rib Eye. Is located on the second floor of the mall in Santa Elena, in a line of other restaurants. Would recommend.

We were able to walk here from our hotel (Arco Iris) and enjoyed our dinner very much! You can tell they take time to use all fresh ingredients and we discovered that our kids love carpaccio, which was delicious!
