The food here is really good and well served. The chicken is well cooked and presented in very nice way. The empanadas are a bit pricey, but very well made. The cocktails are amazing!

Recommended by a client. He wasn't wrong when he said it was "Great spot to stop for a fabulous cocktail". The bartender is very accommodating to make my drink not tooo sweet. Stop by, you'll enjoy it!

Wow. Everythingis amazing. Go for the triple ceviche platter and fried yuca chips. The homemade traditional Peruvian beverage was outstanding.
