Its a great place to have dinner at, the service was excellent, the general manager set me up a table full of rose petals, it was everything i could've asked for the evening, the food itself was delicious and served to perfection, the staff was outstanding and they went the extra mile. Thank you for such a wonderful evening.

Located in Araiza hotel. The rolls are very creative and well priced. I tried a few dishes during a five day stay, including the tomahawk ribeye, ceviche peruano, coconut shrimp. All were very good and well presented. This is one of my favorite places to eat in Mexicali.
