We primarily went to the restaurant on a Friday night to take in the show of traditional music and dance. It is advertised as a weekly event and was very well done. The music started with North American music, song in English but changed to...More

Returned to see if anything had changed, well, obviously it had not. Food was quite pedestrian. The mosquitoes will eat you up under the table as they are breeding them in the fountains (no chlorination in water), service always great but that does little to...More

We explored all of the restaurant menus as we walked down the festive street of the Calle La Calzada before deciding where to eat. The street is always closed off for vehicle traffic so there are all sorts of unique outdoor/indoor restaurants along the way....More

Great steak dinner. $15 US for a nice steak, mixed beans, and plantain. Great price for great quality. That was preceded by a basket of warm bread and some type of 'fry' - perhaps plantain? Delicious meal and professional, friendly service. A beautiful setting with...More
