This place was heaving with people when I arrived and we hadn't booked a table. The manager was very accommodating nonetheless, including my request for a table with space for a pushchair. We went for a walk around the pueblo and by the time we...More

Sat outside and enjoyed delicious grilled salmon and vegetables while my husband ate steak special. Dining while it rained made for a very cozy and romantic evening. Remember to ask for your check or you might be there all evening.

Nice people but what what we expected. They did not provide menus ands therefore we did to know how much money they were going to charge us. No pizza either which is why we went to an Italian restaurant.

Have you ever used the various sauces in Mexico to prepare a taco? Sure, they could have added some slaw or topping, but we found the chicken and steak tacos to be some of the tastiest we've ever had.
