Tasted like nothing. Just big portions. I wouldn't recommend it even if it were the only restaurant in the zone

Picture of lamb roasting next to your table. Food was excellent, you need to be ready to consume alot of meat. I'm from Indiana, USA, cant wait to go back again. Service is excellent as well.

I had the salmon ceviche which was very good. Next I had the grilled lamb which was overcooked but still tasty. The house Carmeniere wine was also quite good. Prices are a little bit steep but service was good. I'd go back.

The attention was bad, but the food was even worst. We went through the sea table and the jekus table. Both were terrible. Not flavor at all. The best, the Doritos. Do not eat here if you like tasty food, but the portions are huge.

We stopped in for lunch one day during the week, we were very happy with it. Wasn't busy at all. Me and my wife both had ceviche. I had the Conger eel ceviche, I definitely recommend it! Waitress was very nice and spoke some English, altogether a good experience

Pretty ordinary food in a fairly dull setting. Pisco sours were the pre-mixed variety. The octopus entree was awful! The only saving grace was the bread rolls with salsa.
