Nice food. Nice ambiance. However, the place opens a little late for dinner and the service isn't the best.

We had a great meal here including cuy, river snails, and roasted goat. Everything was delicious. The herbs and salad greens were delicious and our waiter, Pedro Soncco was fluent in english and charming and very helpful.

We tried eight courses, each one with a glass of wine served by the Somelier; that included two desserts and champagne. It is a fusion restaurant, with different kinds of meat, fish and vegetables, with sauces that felt like heaven! Highly recommended.
