The owner and chef Pedro was incredible. Not only did he provide the most wonderful food, he took the time to discuss with us how he should modify the dishes to meet our desires on that night! Then after that he said "leave the desserts to me" and he brought FOUR huge plates of his own creations. Caroline, my wife... More

Is fantastic when we have the opportunity to eat food cooked with pleasure. Everything we taste was fantastic, the flavor and quality were divine, all in a very modest place fill with passion for food! Thanks Pedro for this very nice meal.
