In my first visit to this restaurant, a nice brazilian group playing excellent Tango music, and a professional couple dancing. The table's spaces are not that well positioned and the space is quite small with all the limited floor to the dancers, so, not too...More

Lovely atmosphere. Warm family restaurant.. Very friendly staff. We were unable to get a taxi back to our hotel due to the Christmas period and one of the staff drove us himself. Very impressed.

views are good, they offer tango songs but the chef seems to be lost in a time warp somewhere around the 80's. If you have an academic interest on how meals were prepared back then, this is the place to go.
