“Funky and arty”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

Liked this place. Well laid out. Bathrooms nice. Good art on the walls (worth having just a drink to check it out). Attentive service. Food nice without blowing me away. Slightly pricey for what it is, but a solid bet.

“Nice place”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Good food, not expensive. Great environment, they have live music.
Ask for the Tantalo Burrito.
The decoration is very unique, specially the bags chairs

“If you love roof tops?..”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

The rooftop is a Great place for a drink and beautiful people watching. Fernando helped us and was amazing! Try to get there by sunset hours, beginning of the evening to get a chair and have great views on both the old town and the skyline of the new city. The food downstairs is great too and the service very good. Recommended!

“Great food with less than good service”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

Got there Saturday night, before the restaurant got busy. Every dish we ordered was delicious. Bigger than expected in a tapas restaurant. As the evening progressed and the place became busier the service deteriorated. Dessert and getting the bill took far longer than what should occur. Overall the good food trumps the less than average service.

“Great in the evening, avoid lunchtime on the weekend”
Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

Great for the outside terrace late on the weekend. Food is great, small plates for sharing. Last time I was there on a Sunday they'd changed the menu which was not as good before.
