After reading reviews I was really disappointed in this place; then again I like adventurous flavours. The burrito was good but really no higher quality than say one from a chain in Canada, as Quesada. The salsa and guacamole were equally bland and not interesting....More

Escape the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave and dine with us in our beautiful gardens just a block off 5th Ave on 22nd. Our service is friendly and sincere while our cuisine is an international blend that reflects the diverse culinary backgrounds and experience of our chefs. We are sure you will love our food as much as we do!! Oh yeah we also have the biggest wine pour in all of Playa!!
