Th efood is usually fresh and well prepared. We had some thuna tostadas, guacamole and a variety of ships: potato, banana, manioc and sweet potato. The Mexican quesadilla with champignons, cheese and pumpkin flowers was very good. Drinks, especially mezcal and margaritas are a must.

We loved this place. Food was amazing, and the mixed drinks were really good and original. We loved it so much we went back on a very short trip. The only drawback is that is very noisy, so go early or very late.

Great space and atmosphere, attentive service, food is presented beautifully with a taste to match. They do meats well (beef, chicken), and I love the pomegranate seeds sprinkled on the guacamole. Eating here-- even or just drinks-- is a quality dining experience and is reasonably...More

Hi Ruta. I just ate there, I am not the restaurant. You can find their phone number on the TA listing. I could not find a web site address. Ted

how is the handicapped access? a few steps we can manage (wife is in a wheelchair) but more than that (like a whole flight of stairs) can be a problem.

It has a ramp to access the restaurant, but restrooms are on the second floor. I didn't see elevator or ground floor facilities.
