“Zicatela star”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

This place is a little gem. Shortly after arriving we ordered a bucket of beer (5) for 100 pesos which allows beers to languish in ice.. Kinda like a fine wine. The Sangria is the best on the strip. You are provided with an unbeleivably vibrant bruschetta as a starter along with chips and salsa. Every plate the four of us had was unique and flavorful. The seafood mixto and fresh hand made ravioli were to die for. People complain about slow service, I find it is relaxed everywhere in the area, sit back, enjoy the ambience, people and vIew. We will turn

“Really Slow, bad service”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

We were a party of 6 for Christmas dinner. We arrived at 9:30 PM and were a bit overwhelmed by a very ambitious dinner menu. The first set of appetizers arrived promptly and were good, and so were the frozen drinks. Then, an hour passed until the second set of appetizers came. When they did, some of us were served and some weren't. The entrees started to arrive sporadically about 45 min. later. By 12:30 am some hadn't been served their appetizers and some were waiting for their second entrees (did I mention the menu was very ambitious?). We asked for our check and left with about half our food actually saved.
The food was good but the service was a disaster. We were never approached by the owner/chef and offered an explanation. My guess is they were overwhelmed and weren't able to adapt in these difficult circumstances.
The food has promise but the service and speed are hopeless.
