The suspended lightbulbs lighting this really gives it its charm, and if you like Mezcal and don’t mind some spice the Jungle Fever is a great way to kick things off.

However, to be asked what kind of water we would like to drink before our butts could even hit the seats and be told we needed to order desserts while ordering starters and mains because the kitchen was closing was disappointing (we arrived shortly before 21:30). They clearly just wanted to wrap things up ASAP, which ruined our experience.

Regarding the food, if was distinctly average given alternatives.

Don’t go late in low season!

The space is beautiful, definitely has its magic to it, food was good. We came to celebrate 4 birthdays and had a great time, ambiance is definitely a winner here! Would go back.

Beautiful outdoor atmosphere with a beautiful indoor bar. Great food, great drinks, great service. The only parking I could find was paid parking down the street a little ways, FYI. Worth it though.

I came here on a Saturday evening as I heard it was THE place to be. I’d agree that it was definitely “vibey” with salsa music which started at 9pm but the food was average. But by all means, go if you want to be seen.

FYI, DO NOT get the smoked sweet potatoes - there was nothing to write home about them.

The food was fresh and delicious, the service laid back but professional. Ambience was great. Perfect for a special night or just a great night out! Lighting is dim so hard to see what you are eating, otherwise it would be a five!
