Service was great and food was amazing. We had the tequenos criollos and the causushis for appetizer's and they were absolutely delicious. The tacu tacu was awesome. If you are in the San Isidro area don't miss Tantas!!

The food was quite tasty -- as usual, I definitely recommend the aji de gallina tequeños. However, the service was quite terrible.

One of the best places offering local and international platters. Service is good. Price is average to expensive. In general, very good value for money.
