The Restaurant might be good. But I went there to the Dinner in Dark and it was a huge disappointment for us. "1000" people in small room, to loud... Really Really bad experience!

Fresh vegetables cooked the way you would expect it with fresh raw vegs. Parents with their kids should definitely try this place out. Smiles will appear! Spanish music really gets us to come back.
