The restaurant has stylishly converted a home into a comfortable restaurant. However for the prices that are charged, the food is a disappointment. I think a bit too much attention to rich sauces and not enough to the actual meat/fish underneath! Trying to be a bit too fancy and French!

The place is very well done - stylish yet cozy with a nice terrace. The food is outstanding. Starters are very creative and delicious. The meats and fish are of excellent quality and we're prepared perfectly. Highly recommended!

Very nice restaurant in a quiet area of Zona 10. The ambience is lovely, and service is very good. I have tried several plates, with my favorite being their salmon, which is very well prepared and served. Try sitting outside, facing a small garden out front.

We been here a couple of times and we love the place and the music. Food is amazing they have this incredible appetiser with blue cheese and another one with portobello mushrooms. We tried a couple of the wines they offer and did not disappoint.

This place, speciallizing in meat dishes (although they carry other options, too), distinguishes for having very nicely decorated salons, which offer some privacy, and also outdoor seating. The house was very well adapted to make you feel it was always intended to be a restaurant. The appetizers choices are all very well prepared and offer a nice variety. You could... More

Their food tastes amazing, the place is very cozy, it reminds me of a pub. I went there with 12 friends and the time we waited for our meals was more than acceptable. The porch is great for birthday parties and the service was exceptional.
