We had a really nice time killing an hour or so here and grabbing a light bite to eat with a few cappuccinos. It’s a very laid back place but we loved the vibe.

Great atmosphere and not too touristy which we found very refreshing for the area. The food was OK, the service a little slow, but a very relaxing place for dinner overall. Try the canelazo which was delicious

I really love this little place. It has a great chill vibe and a bohemian decor with a wonderful fireplace and a patio. The food is delicious. Mind you this is not your typical "menu del dia" type place. It has a great little menu...More
