“Very racist place!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

I have not visit the place, but three of my friends who have natural hair visited this place today and they were discriminated just because they have afro/curly hair! The person at the door told them that they could not enter because their type of hair was against their dress code. When did the type of hair a person has became part of a dress code? My friends were nicely dressed and their hair were nicely done but they were denied the entry to the place. They asked to speak with the manager and he was very indiferent with the situation. I can believe that a country were 90% of people have brown skin and curly/afro hair you can get this can of treatment. I don't recommend this place.

“Outstanding Experience! ”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

We found this place by luck and decided to give it a go. Everything from the decoration, to the presentation of the food, the servers, to the fusion of flavors, tapa style menus, everything was A+. Extremely impressed. The chef came out at the end to greet us and was extremely friendly. You have to try the Osobuco Risotto and the Caribbean Dorado. This is a hidden treasure.
