Food is decent but no better than other places we went to with no wait at all. Service was good. Atmosphere is good as well. Mojito is a rip off. $8... More

The place was sooo crowded on a Thursday night, not even high season. As we were two, we got seated pretty fast. Inside, wood furniture and artisan things decorated the place, and the personnel was dressed as old times, with local traditional customs.

There seems to always be a wait. However visited on Thursday night and for a table of 2 only waited 10 minutes. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious. I recommend the allcaparitas for an appetizer. Shared with the table the skirt steak wrapped in bacon for my entree with mamposteao and it was very delicious. Also... More
