The decor is great and makes the place feel really comfortable. The single waiter was amazing under the circumstances. The ceviche was average and the prices were high.

We have tried ceviche, arroz con mariscos and langostinos. They all were delicious. The portions are very big for 2 or3. So it is better to order moderatelu and share. Even the plates of other tables were eye catching

I don’t know if reservations are possible. I advice to get there early because it is full during lunch hour.
