“Very Good Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

The steak was recommended as well as several seafood dishes. I had the Mixed Seafood dish (forgot the Spanish name), which the waitress recommended and it was very good. The waitress was pleasant and helpful, we worked through my Spangish.

“Excellent steak and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Tried the grilled tenderloin, medium, and it was excellent. One of the juiciest and tender steaks I've had, comparable to the filet mignon at my favorite place in New Mexico. Between my limited Spanish and the waiter's limited English, we made out okay. I would highly recommend. The music has changed from what others have reported, soft 80s classics mostly.
