“Heard it was better than i experienced!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

I asked for a reservation because several friends had recommended this restaurant. Actually not that great. In fact prices are high for the service they provide.

“Good food but it is not what it used to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

Generally speaking the place is lacking in maintenance. You eat well but there were some items on the menu which they did not have, I asked for a salad and it was scarce, also the shrimps au gratin were not enough, as it was not an entree. For the price we payed it was not up to scratch.

“Frozen in Time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013 via mobile

The prominent photos of the first George Bush and the old man owner walking around here never acknowledging guests is a tip off. Cool location overlooking La Barra beach. Since we speak Spanish, not sure how non speakers would make out- probably be a chore to stay here...We like this old school funky hotel but it is apparent that not one step has been taken to become current except the spotty wifi. There are no well lighted public spaces among the hodgepodge of corridors and sitting rooms. The only books and magazines are the real estate ad variety. Our local fish lunch was tasty but everything on the plate was drowning in butter. Everywhere one looks there is deferred maintenance apparent. Like its oblivious owner the place needs a swift kick in the pants.

“DO NOT GO”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

I booked a table for a couple to celebrate his anniversary and imagine that was CLOSED? Even received the e-mail confirmation from MONICA. I send an e-mail to complain and MONICA told me sorry was a mistake!!! This restaurant must learn to work!

On the pricey side, the food was excellent, I ordered brotola with a zapallo mousse it was delicious.
