Many alternatives for this place: dinner, happy hour, friends together, celebrations. These were the scenes we saw there. There was a DJ managing the sound. Very nice place.

Appearance and Interior have been improved and also the menu has been modified. We have done a quick dinner of calamaris chicken wings,camarones and tortilla chips, and everything was fine. Service was attentive and fast. We'll be back for a longer stay next time.

I don't understand why they didn't warn us that the kid dishes ate hot and spicy Who servers hot / very spicy kids dishes... The adult main courses took forever to arrive. Bad experience, bad service - don't go if you are with children.
