Visited this place twice and they didn't disappoint. Great seafood and other daring creations (my personal favorite was the eggplant appetizer). Very good service too.

I had the Damaris de Diego - rice with coconut, shrimp stew and fried plantain. Loved the combination of flavors. For dessert, we had the chocolate profiteroles which were delicious. Nice ambiance and great service from the staff and owner.
