A friend of mine told me about this place. It was supposed to be a good place to eat. Since we were a party of 8 we called and tried to reserve a table but were told we could not do that and we needed to come and request a table. We arrived to the very small restaurant. The door was closed and a couple was waiting outside of the tiny and crowded establishment. My friend ventured inside and requested a table for 8. She was told by the manager, named Natalia, that a table for 8 was to be available en about 15 minutes. She took her name phone number. We waited standing outside the establishment for over an hour. Meanwhile, lots of people were coming in and out of the restaurant. At which point we were tired and hungry, thus, again we ventured inside to see when our table was to be ready. The only table for 8 was now occupied by a party of 4 people. We were puzzled about this so my friend and I ask Natalia why that table was not assigned to us. Natalia was not only rude but disrespectful and screamed at us that she was following a waiting list (of which we were never told before) and there was a party of 7 before us that was to take the only table for 8 available. Of course we were upset and felt mislead by her 15 minute wait estimate, at which point she yelled at us, as we walked away. At that point we did not wish to dine there and left to a different restaurant. I certainly will never, ever come back to this restaurant. Save your time and the aggravation. Do not go to this place.

This restaurant has a small menu of very nicely prepared dishes. I had a seafood tart with a salad (I should have asked for the dressing on the side.. it had way too much oil). My wife had an excellent steak. The wait was long but worth it. Unfortunately the wait has to be outside. The restaurant itself is worth the visit. I really enjoyed the old adds on the walls.

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and simply had to go there! It is unique: looking like a garage from the outside and an exotic home on the inside with floorlamps, tables and chairs hanging upside-down from the ceiling. We got a cosy table in the front part of the restaurant and ordered bruschetta as starter followed by jabali (boar) and beer. The bruschetta was simple and very good. The boar was much less good as the meat not very good quality. Service was good.

Everything about this dining experience was extraordinary, starting with the fact that the restaurant is located in a most unlikely spot, what looks like a garage on a residential block. Once inside, we were instantly struck by how warm and welcoming the place was - candlelight, wonderful smell and the most unexpected decor. The empanada was incredible, salmon crisp and moist and chocolate dessert simply perfection. We especially loved the fact that the restaurant was filled with locals, not a touristy place at all. Just amazing, creative and beautiful food served in a converted garage. Simply exceptional! Come early because there is no reservations (at 9 pm there was no wait) and it's cash only.
