This restaurant is not located in the safest part of town. It needs a good scrubbing-down! Floors, walls, chairs, table tops. Servers were very nice and efficient. Alcoholic mixed drinks were greatly watered down. Food was marginal, and not presented well.

It was a bit too pricey for lunch. The seafood was fresh, but too spicy 🌶 for my taste. It was hard to find parking. The service was good.

A rather small place and quite nosy with the open room. But food is really great and we had a very good time with the whole group.

We went for lunch. Started with Gaucamole and chips and drinks. Excellent gaucamole - very fresh and tasty - highly recommended. All the dishes we ordered were very good - especially seafood entries. A bit pricey for lunch though.
