This place is a wonderful choice to eat great meat and have a good time. Beautiful spot and the best staff you can find. I admire the owner and he makes you feel at home. All the staff is very welcoming too.

We went on a weekend. A very busy place but with a good service and good cuisine. There is a great terrace and open space for the kids to play. Just a little pricy.

The food and the service are not up to par. A lot of the food lacked basic seasoning and orders took a long to arrive. The place is nice and there is a cool terrace, which can be enjoyed by kids.
