“Wonderful cuisine!”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We had a few family dinners there for the Christmas season. We loved the filet of beef. The steak was prepared better than some well-know steakhouses. The plantain chips pre-dinner are incredible. The plantain crusted fish is so good.

“Knock Your Eyes Out Service & Food”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

There were the two of us...We really liked the food & service...but didn't like the crowded feeling...Also a little less attention would have permitted us to enjoy our conversation a little better...

“Fine dining by all means”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

First of all, thousands thanks to my Trip Advisor Fellow travelers and their reviews for recommending this place. They did not steer us wrong. Yes, this establishment should be number one, as it is at the time of this review.
Food was beyond excellent; freshness, originality, and taste… exceeded our expectations.
Service; it is at the level of fine dining, high class, and five stars. (Thanks to Ashley M).
Respect; your business will be appreciated by the staff and particularly by the owner (Mr. Paco).
Price; it is just right.
Environment; high class, very comfortable and friendly settings.
Dress code; dress casual smart or business (to avoid any embarrassment).

I will dine there every time I am in the area; alone, with a group, or in a romantic night.
