Really good vibes, delightful food and lovely service! It‘s perfect for a romantic evening or for a nice dinner with friends. I definitely recommend it! You absolutely have to try their „Combo Ultimato“ with a nice glass of homemade strawberries margarita!

Friendly service, good food. Parking is a bit difficult close by. Tuesdays "all-you-can-eat" chicken fajitas! Real authentic Tex-Mex food and flavour. Steaks are surprisingly good, too.
