Edu had pig's knuckle which I tried and it tasted delicious !! Charlene had steak cooked on a stone & it was to die for. I had 4 huge langostinos... More

Muckis used to be a really hip place back at 2000 or so. If you wanted to see TV people that was the place to go back then. Nowadays it is still a really nice restaurant located 40 minutes away from the city at Ilalos volcano. Food is really good, prepared with organic vegs and first class ingredients. Anyway, it...

There is no... More

I've been to this place a couple of times. The food is great, the service as well. It's a little crowded on weekends and the only downside is the price, which is high but the food is worth it. It felt nostalgic as I ate for the first time in many years German cuisine. What they didn't have was non-spicy... More

They always can offer you a special wine. The food and quality is superb, service very helpful and always friendly. I cannot say anything wrong about this restaurant. Try the Langostinos al Jerez. ...the best. The place itself is a little hard to find.

I have eaten there for more than a decade and I have never been dissapointed! Allthough they are pricey they serve such good quality food that I would recommend anyone to have a fine meal there. Mucki should be proud of her children as they do a great job to fill up her shoes. If you are deterred by the... More

Heard about Mucki's for years, and finally had the chance to go. Definitely lived up to my expectations. Tried many main courses, all of them excellent. Side dishes are wonderful too. Owners and staff are very friendly, and the decor is fun and comfortable. Tucked off the beaten path, you wouldn't even know it was there. But obviously word gets... More

The location of the restaurant was terrible, especially at night. The food was great and service too. The rustic decoration of the place was good.
