This was a pleasant lunch, though the food was uninspiring. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of our experience was the live band, which, with 3 players on a giant xylophone, was prettyy entertaining.

My receipt was proof that I had ordered my meat well done. Awful service. Manager did nothing to offer to correct their mistake. See picture of receipt showing 'bien asada'. Never again.
