Really novel and interesting decorations. The food was quite good as was our service. A number of reviews called it "romantic". I would not call it romantic, with tables 12" away from each other. But, I would recommend trying it.

Two simple wooden doors open up to quite a buzz in an otherwise romantic courtyard, where a colorful crowd hangs at the bar and lingers at coveted patio tables. Inside, seats spread throughout the candlelit house-turned-restaurant with intimate decor. Organic seasonal ingredients, creatively prepared and impeccably presented, characterize our unique menu.
