Grilled octopus brochettes were the die for! Steak was cooked well, a bit fatty but very tasty. Good Mexican red wine, love the grill set up they have here.

This place has great food. The staff were super nice. The drinks were good. They take credit cards and their prices were totally reasonable even for lobster. What more could want.
