It's cosy and warm (very warm), you have to give them that but then you order something and have to sit for one hour until they realize you have no dish in front of you and you are occupying a valuable table. Then they will ask you what was it you ordered and maybe bring it in the next 10 minutes.

From the outside the place looked cosy and inviting. Once inside, no one to great us or show us a table. Not such a problem, but after having to find the waitress it then took a further 10/15 minutes for the menu to arrive. Another 15 minutes to order drinks and a starter. She then disappeared before we could finish ordering main course! 10 minutes later 2 out of 3 drinks arrived, 3rd drink arrived still later with the starter! Then re-ordered the mains. 20 minutes later 2 mains arrived all be it 1 arrived at the wrong table!
All in all the food wasn't too bad, shame numerous customers we saw entering and leaving before the waitress noticed didn't get chance to taste the food!

If you have 3, maybe 4 hours to spare and not hungry when you start - this may be the place for you.
We tried to eat at this restaurant twice during our stay and walked out both times after over 30 mins without even a drink order taken. The 3 tables around us had been waiting for almost an hour for their drinks and haven't even got to the menu order yet.
Why?.... As we have heard, the food is supposedly amazing - again, as long as you have the patience to wait.
I wish I could say I was exaggerating. We had heard from other travellers that the service was really poor but thought - 'how bad could it be...?' It's TERRIBLE!!
The last time we sat without menus or even acknowledgment before we left.
I hear the food is worth it but we will never know. There is many other great places to eat here than waste your time at this place. 2 doors down is La Orilla and the food is great and service is absolutely fantastic!

We ate there twice because we loved it so much! Also had fun playing scrabble from their games selection. They do something a little different on their burritos though, they top them with mustard! If you don't like mustard, ask them to make it without.
