My daughter has been here a few times and suggested this as I love trying any food. I have to say the food is really good here. Authentic, not westernized at all! The simplest ingredients make wonderful food. You can also tell the food is...More

Food was better than I expected. I definitely would go back. We had brunch and all the breakfast selection was reasonably priced.

I'll admit... the exterior of this place was nothing to get excited about. HOWEVER, we went on a beautiful summer day and sat on the really nice back patio and had a lovely time. The food was unique and super, super good and the staff...More

Get the beef saldado, it’s really the best dish I’ve had in a long time. Good service, it’s usually pretty busy so don’t be surprised if you have to wait a little for a table. Lunch might be easier getting a table.

I've been a few times now, and every meal has been fantastic. Their chimichurri sauce is magical too. One of my favorite places in the cities, just be prepared for a wait around dinner. It's a small place and people line up for it.

In addition to Jim's response, you should be able to order the salad (without cheese – but do check on the dressing) and I've had some delicious vegetable soups that should be safe as well. We always order the yucca... More
